The 5-speed is shared between the e46 & e53 3.0. The e53 LCI transfer case bolts to the 5-speed (although e39_touring says the pre-lci xfer case doesn't) and we know the e46 transfer case (nv125) bolts to the 5-speed. We also know the nv125 bolts to the 6-speed used in the e46 so it follows the nv124 should bolt up as well, so that 6-speed should work in an e53, in theory. You might need to figure something out for the shift linkage but I'd imagine it will be close if it doesn't work out of the box.
Even though the transmission is the same family, the ratios and cases are different between the E53 (nv125 t/c) and E46 (nv124 t/c). I pulled a couple of pics off ebay (nv 124 on top), and the transfer cases do have different bolt patterns and axle configurations, making a swap like this very difficult and involved.
