I have a standard procedure where  MyNumber is passed in as a parameter.
Using it, I want to get the value of tblMyTable.MyId and assign it to @MyId
How do I do this?
 
DECLARE @Myid as int
select [Myid] from [MyDB].[dbo].[tblMyTable]
where [MyNumber] = @MyNumber
-- @MyId = [Myid] ???
-- use @Myid at this point

You have two variables used in your query, @Myid and @MyNumber. If you want to select from the table based on the passed-in variable only, then you don't need both.

DECLARE @MyNumber INT
SET @MyNumber = 12345

SELECT MyID, col1, col2, ..... FROM MyTable
WHERE MyID = @MyNumber
