I think what he meant was:
my problem is now the chirp for program the Yaesu FT-991 via Cat ( USB-USB
), under Windows 10 with RMS Software no problem,

This means he has used the 991 with RMS with the USB to USB cable showing
us that it works.

 in the actual chirp version i did not can choose the FT-991 from the
dropdown list.

This means he can't choose it because it's not there.
