Hi Oliver,
Not exactly, at least with commands, but you may be able to accomplish essentially what you desire by using "alias" (string substitution into commands) and/or named selections.

See
<http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/midas/alias.html>
<http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/docs/UsersGuide/midas/namesel.html>

I'm fond of aliases, which don't require you to go through selection.
I hope this helps,
Elaine
