Hi Mireya,
There are several ways to control chain display individually.   Here are some simple ways:

In the menu you can use Select... Chain to select some chain,  then choose something in the Actions menu to act on it, for example Actions... Ribbon... hide, Actions... Atoms/Bonds hide.

In the command line (show with menu: Favorites... Command Line), there is a syntax to specify model, chain, residue, atom, ...
For example, commands:
~ribbon :.e
(hides ribbon for chain E)
~display ~:.e
(hides atoms for all chains that are NOT chain E)

You might want to take a look at some of the tutorials for learning Chimera, like Getting Started:
<http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/Outreach/Tutorials/GettingStarted.html>
.... and more, see Chimera menu: Help... Tutorials.

I hope this helps,
Elaine
