Hi Rosa,
The spheres are the atoms, just assign the atoms (=spheres) the desired colors with the Actions... Color menu or the "color" command.

You might want to take a look at some of the tutorials for learning Chimera, like Getting Started:
.... and more, see Chimera menu: Help... Tutorials.

I hope this helps,
