In the remote API, what is the difference between the devices field for createMessage and the hwid used for registering a device?

The "devices" parameter of the /createMessage request should contain device push tokens that you receive after successfully registering a device, not it's hwid's.

For targeting purposes we strongly recommend using Tags instead of raw push tokens, because for instance Android tokens tend to expire from time to time, making this method not reliable for sending messages to specific devices.
