Dear Ahmad Khalifa,
For general information of what’s in Chimera, you can look at the User’s Guide, which lists all the tools and commands with short descriptions of each:

You can also search for words like “interactions” or “H-bonds” using menu: Help… Search Documentation.

Open the tools that you want to use from the Chimera Tools menu, for example:

Tools… Structure Analysis… FindHBond
Tools… Structure Analysis… Find Clashes/Contacts

There are many tutorials, including “Getting Started” for new users,
 “Structure Analysis and Comparison” for examples of finding H-bonds and clashes, etc.
