It is not a trivial question.
I suggest that you use CCP4i2 interface for now - it is more featureful than
the Coot interface.
You can see Rob demoing the interface here:
But IIRC, your problem is more tricky yet, because one of the chains is
"backwards" relative to the other. I don't think
that I ever solved that.
As for auto-loading the module, this is what I have in my
