While not on the official Stack Exchange network, BioStar has a good community of people asking and answering bioinformatics questions. I see that others have asked PyMol questions there. At one point, there was a discussion about rolling BioStar into the Bioinformatics Area51 proposal to bring it into Stack Exchange.

A mod, suggesting a non SE site?! O the travesty. What has this world come to? – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jun 22 '12 at 17:12

I am surprised you didn't consider Superuser. Yes, it's an application used only by a small, specialized audience, but it's an application nonetheless, and that's where application questions go. Even questions like "How do I print from Visual Studio" get routed there, as they're about using an application rather than about programming per se.
