I’ve got a pretty deep hierarchy of directories to keep my data organized, so I’ve been trying to look for a way to make Chimera keep the path of the directory where I launched it from, with no success.

There’s a preference for this.  In the General category of Preferences (Favorites->Preferences) change “Open dialog starts in directory from last session” from true to false.  Assuming you want it to apply to future uses of Chimera, click Save.
