Hi Helen,
Take a look at the Rotamers tool (under Tools... Structure Editing) -  
I think it does exactly what you want. Besides displaying the  
rotamers of your chosen residue type and their library probability  
values, it can evaluate clashes, H-bonds, etc. and allows you to  
incorporate a chosen rotamer back into the structure.

Here is the man page for the Rotamers graphical interface:

There is also a command implementation, swapaa:

I hope this helps,
