i know that this is a chimera forum, but for the purpose of changing the 
chain id you can use 2 software
1. vmd. in vmd console you do a selection like:

set sel [atomselect top "chain A"]
$sel set chain B

given that your initial chain id was A and the desired is B

if you don't have a initial chain id, then you can specify a residue range:
set sel [atomselect top "resid 1 to 24"]
$set sel chain B

mind you that top specifies the top molecule that is selected in vmd 
main window.

2. coot. in coot it's simpler:

calculate -> change chain ids.

in both cases you need to save your file for the changes to take effect
