It's not that fancy I'm afraid. Of course you could count the net charge
on the HEME group... That is why ligated residues are just treated as

I don't but it is really easy to make! Assuming you will use united atoms
for the CH3 groups, you edit the LYS entry in the rtp file, replace the
HZ1-3 by CH3, and adjusted the charges and the bond length. Charges you
can probably "borrow" from lipid topologies. You also have to update the
corresponding hdb file and copy the entry for LYS to TML, and take away
the entry that generates the hydrogens on the NZ.
