Could you use iced chicken/vegetable stock instead? What would an equal amount of miso paste instead of salt do?

You could do both....always your choice. Here are probable results:
1) If the stock is meant to replace the lemon juice, you will likely have same texture & consistency. But flavor will be less bright. Hummus needs the acid of lemon juice to balance the richness and fat of the beans and oil. In a pinch, I've used vinegar to replace the lemon works, part way. The acid-oil balance is ok, but the flavor is not as bright.
2) Miso paste has about half of 1 percent of the sodium in table salt. So using it tbsp for tbsp is almost like not using salt. Flavor will be different from original recipe.
