I'm hoping others will chime in with regard to the errors you got when  
trying to import chimera modules into a standalone Python, but  
specifically in regard to the above you can pass arguments to your  
script if you tell Chimera it's a script (rather than a session file,  
say) by using the --script flag.  Here's the pertinent info from the  
Chimera documentation:

--script script.py
Put all unprocessed arguments into sys.argv for the script to handle.  
The end of arguments for Chimera can be indicated with --. For example,
chimera --nogui --nostatus --script myscript.py -- -p 1jhg -r 1.8
would pass the arguments -p 1jhg -r 1.8 to the script. See the  
Programmer's FAQ for more details. See also the commandrunscript.
