Dear Alex,
Not directly, the “swapaa” command only uses the ranking rules that you tell it to use.  Only if the rules happened to choose that rotamer would you get it.  To directly choose a specific rotamer as listed in the rotamers dialog, you would have to use that dialog (Rotamers graphical user interface).

The rules are specified with the “criteria” option of swapaa, see:
