The brief answer is that no, it is not doable from the command line  
unless all you want is the highest-probability rotamer (and if that's  
the case read the links that Elaine sent for how to do that).  It is  
possible using the GUI.  It is also possible using Python code (almost  
anything is).  If you know how to program Python, look at the  
useRotamer() function in Rotamers/__init__.py [in the Chimera  
distribution] to get started.
