The source is included in the Chimera download, and the methods are described in the documentation; see here and follow the links from this page for further details:

If the methods are suitable for your work, you could just use Chimera to do the alignments and RMSD calculations.  

However, maybe you are supposed to write your own code for some homework project.  In that case, there may be more direct, basic information available on the Web (rather than digging into Chimera code).
