Hi Prasad,
I don’t know what other words to use — it is exactly as the description says.  First decide if you want one file or multiple files.  If you want one file, choose whether you want all in one molecule or individual molecule sections,  then choose location and enter the filename.  (Most people want individual molecules, but we are giving you the choice.) If you want multiple files, choose location, but there is only one place to enter name (even though the result will have multiple names) so you have to enter something that literally includes “$name” or “$number”.

If you have two files that are models #1 and #2 in Chimera and you choose to save multiple files and enter file name:  
… then you will get two files, blahblah1.mol2 and blahblah2.mol2

I hope this helps,
