Hi Chinmaya,
If you are using the Chimera command line, you want Chimera commands, not python.

Here is how to use the "open" command,

see the part about local files,

However, based on our earlier correspondence, I somewhat doubt you have a PNG stack.  Just having multiple PNG files does not mean that they are a stack.  An image stack is generally produced by some instrument (say a microscope) and consists of 2D images that when opened together and slightly displaced from one another along the third dimension, create a single 3D map or object.
