Perhaps you could explain in more detail what you want to determine
here. AFAIK, there is no unique angle between non-intersecting lines

There is no command or GUI for it, but in Python pretty much anything
is possible. I've appended a Python script that will draw axis-
aligned bounding boxes of currently selected molecules (or all
molecule models if none are selected). Just open it with File...Open
or the "open" command.
