Hi Charlie,
If I understand you correctly, this is something you
can do this in the user interface (without dealing with code).
Your structures should automatically associate with the
sequences when opened in Chimera, if the structure's sequence
and the sequence in the alignment match well enough.  Even
if they don't, you can "force" the structure to associate
using Multalign Viewer's menu option
  Structure... Associations
This option brings up a dialog in which you can specify
which of the structures open in Chimera should be
associated with  a sequence in the alignment.

I hope this helps,
