Elaine is correct, but the command she suggests will protonate every phosphate oxygen, whereas you likely only want to protonate one per phosphate group. Assuming the phosphate oxygens are named OP1 and OP2, you could protonate all the OP2s with:
setattr a idatmType O3 @OP2

For a very specific application, I need to remove all the Sodium atoms from a PDB file and, in turn, add hydrogens to all the DNA phosphate groups (whatever the oxygen). Since for chimera that atom type is identified as O3- (possibly resonance-equivalent terminal oxygen on tetrahedral center (phosphate, sulfate, N-oxide), I have tried:
