I'm hesitant to add buttons to the model panel since the button list  
is already kind of long, particularly for functions that aren't all  
that hard to access.  As a power user, you might want to consider  
using keyboard shortcuts, as documented here:

Chimera Keyboard Shortcuts (Accelerators)

In particular, 'op' will bring up the open-file dialog, and 'ov' the  
open-volume dialog.  There are shortcuts for opening the last file you  
opened, the second-to-last, the last two, etc. which is convenient for  
quickly opening the same file(s) you were working on in a previous  
session when you start a new session.  Also, 'xs' will export a scene.
