In your emacs settings, you have to give emacs the path to the scheme interpreter that you want to use.

You can do that by using M-x customize-variable and then entering "scheme-program-name".

You'll get a customization dialog where you'll put the scheme command name (make sure the command is in the path emacs recognizes).

Then, just write a .scm file and emacs will automatically use Scheme mode to handle it. From there, you just have to use the available commands from the mode, like evaluate last sexp, etc.
