The whole point of using HP System Insight Manager, is that is hides all the layers beneath it that include details like WMI  and OpenPegasus.
You interface with HP SIM, and do not have to know anything about OpenPegasus or WMI.
And it makes WMI Mapper useless since it is more efficient for HP SIM to call WMI directly.

As far as I can remember, HP enhanced the WMI Mapper of openPegasus and used it in HP SIM.

So, you already have WMI Mapper in HP SIM, May be you can contact HP support on configuring and using it

I am a little out of date with HP SIM, but as it used to be, it used WMI on Windows systems, and OpenPegasus on Linux systems, internally, already, and is a uniform layer on top of these two lower implementations.
If you are using Windows then why bother crossing over, and if using Linux why bother duplicating?

If you are not using something like HP SIM, then it makes sense to install OpenPegasus on all systems, either Windows or Linux, so that you have a uniform interface.
In which case it then makes sense to use WMI Mapper underneath to allow OpenPegasus to access all the WMI data.
But I believe the whole point of HP SIM is to already do that for you, and HP SIM is the uniform interface for all Windows and Linux systems?

Either way it does not seem right to try to add WMI Mapper to HP SIM, because WMI Mapper is not a layer on top, but would have to go underneath HP SIM, and I don't believe that would be possible?
In fact I think it would conflict with or duplicate the lower layer HP SIM already uses.

But again, that is from an old perspective that could no longer be valid.

I’m using an HP SIM 7.6 installed on a Centos 6 distribution.
I don’t understand if openpegasus can act as a WMI Mapper proxy in the SIM mentioned.
If yes, how can Install and configure properly?
