Let me see if I understood well your problem.
You want to run a simulation of a protein with a modified amino acid, right?
If so, ok, I am still thinking in a better way of automatising this
procedure for GROMACS (using a tool I've been developing:
But given the current situation, I would advice you to create your new
residue and put it in the respective ffamber*.rtp (look also at *.hdb,
*bon.itp and *nb.itp) of ffamber ports. Then, with your original pdb
(modified to to amber dialect) you could have you system solvatated, ionized
and ready for GMX.
There's also the possibility of creating everything you want in leap and
then use amb2gmx/acpypi to convert to GMX top and tweak it a little to have
the specific water model you want.
I don't know how big is your system in the end but be aware that rdparm
(used by amb2gmx) is limited to up 150k atoms or 50k residues (acpypi has
not limits but computer memory).
