Hi Harini,
Chimera does not do any automated docking.  You can interactively 
position the structures yourself by "freezing" the position of one 
structure and moving the  other, but Chimera does not determine the 
positions or tell you which ones are more favorable.

One way to freeze a model so it doesn't move when you rotate or 
translate the others is to uncheck the "Active" checkbox in the Model 
Panel (Favorites... Model Panel in the Chimera menu).
I hope this helps,
