Hi Vladyslav,
In Chimera you can select part of the structure and then save only the selected atoms (it is an option in the File… Save PDB dialog), but it will stil be PDB format.

Chimera does not convert PDB to XYZ  format, so you would need to find some other program to do that part -- maybe openbabel?
