Hi Henrique,
The message said to look at the Log, where it says:

 Install the SEQCROW bundle to open "XYZ file" format files. 

... and "Install the SEQCROW bundle" is even a link that you can click to go directly to the SEQCROW installation page.  So try installing that (which is easy, just click "Install") and then try opening your XYZ file.

By the way, for asking questions about ChimeraX specifically, we recommend using the address chimerax-users at cgl.ucsf.edu (CC'd on this message).
