Actually mmCIF of nucleic acids already have the base-pairing H-bonds, as you can see before opening the pb file. You can control number of dashes with ChimeraX command “style” and color using “color” with “target p” … I don’t think there’s a command for pseudobond thickness yet, however.

Strictly speaking, the answer is no. Atom specs in Chimera and ChimeraX differ. For instance, the Chimera atom spec “:11.A at ND1” in Chimera X would be “/A:11 at ND1”. As you generate H-bonds in Chimera, there’s an option to save them to a file. You would then have to edit that file and swizzle things around to get the info into the atom-pair format that ChimeraX can read as pseudobonds.
