Dear Rida,
I can only guess you are doing something(s) wrong.  If you can open a PDB file (for example, using menu: File… Open), then you can just save it as a mol2 file with menu: File… Save Mol2.

You should try the step-by-step tutorials that tell you exactly what to do, such as “Getting Started”:

…there are many more tutorials, choose Chimera menu: Help… Tutorials or see copies on our website:

If you report a problem, it is necessary to say exactly what you did or typed, what exactly the error message said, and sometimes even include the exact same data; otherwise, we may not be able to tell what happened.

The only other suggestion is to make sure your Chimera is not too old, so that it has the newer features and matches the instructions.
