Hi Hernando,

  Just a week ago I added a Chimera command that will do this:

    measure rotation #0 #1

reports in the reply log the same info about the orientation of model #0 
relative to model #1 that the Fit Map tool does.  You can abbreviate the 
command "me rot #0 #1".  It also displays the rotation axis and that 
can't currently be turned off.  This command is so new it has not yet 
been documented.  You'll need a current daily build to use it.
