Canon 90D raw file name is IMG-1001.CR3, IMG-1002.CR3...
Is there anyway to rename them to add today's date as IMG-1001_200915.CR3, IMG-1002_200915.CR3...when today's files were imported?
Further more, rename them in hard drive?
Doing so, it will be easy to identify the date for photos.

To add to Cletus's comment, you won't be able to todays's date. The date used in the naming template will be the date of shooting, as recorded by your camera in the file.

In the naming template you can structure it like this
{Filename}_{Custom text} then when you use the template in the import dialog, type "200915" in the "custom text" field.

Do you need help with how to create a naming template?

BTW, For this to work you must be using the Copy, Move, or Copy as DNG modes in the import dialog. Using the "Add" doesn't allow this.
