Hello Maria Taj Muhammad,
The address for questions about using Chimera is chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu (CC’d here).

Chimera does not read chemdraw.cdx files, sorry. 

Here is a list of the atomic-structure formats that Chimera can read:

You would probably want to use PDB, Mol2, or (MOL) SDF for your ligands, to read them in to Chimera.  Then you can use the Dock Prep tool (in menu under Tools… Structure Editing) to add hydrogens and charges and save as Mol2. 

I hope this helps,
