editconf has several coordinate transformation options, e.g.
-center <x> <y> <z> to set the center of a group of atoms at a
certain position. There may be other (non-Gromacs) programs, e.g.
molecular modeling packages, that are more suitable for this.

Distance restraints are a molecule property (in Gromacs), and hence
cannot be used between two separate molecules (i.e. enzyme and substrate).
There have been extensive discussions on the lists of workarounds.
