Hi Reza,
There is no Chimera command to do the association, sorry.  That there are GUI  or menu actions without commands are a limitation of Chimera that we are actively addressing in ChimeraX.

There must be some python code that would do it, but somebody else would have to advise on that.

In ChimeraX instead of Chimera, you can do all the steps of (B) in that procedure with commands, namely: open, matchmaker, sequence chain, sequence associate, sequence header, save <filename> attrName seq_rmsd  ... see help pages:


I hope this helps,
