Hi Atsutoshi,
If you want the "element" coloring (oxygen red, nitrogen blue, ... )  
one way is to use the menu item:

Actions... Color... by element

Actually there are many different ways to color atoms, ribbons,  
surfaces, and other things.  The many ways are listed in this manual  


In Chimera, you can search for help using the menu item:

Help... Search Documentation

for example, if you search by  "coloring" the page I mentioned above  
is hit #2.  There are also tutorials for new users of Chimera  
(Help... Tutorials).
I hope this helps,
