I have a pdb of one chain of a homodimer. How would I be able to also get a pdb for the other identical chain so that I can  generate a psf?

It's strange that you have a pdb  of an homodimer with the only one chain. the problem is that if you need a pdb of the second chain you must have the crystallographic coordinates. Are you sure that the determinated structure contains only one chains? Have you read the reference?

Will you please provide the pdb id, so that we can understand it more clearly to get a solution. Do BLAST with the other identical chain first. Then it will give an idea about the structure.
