Hallo again!
I would like to know the current status of the implementation of the Amber 
forcefield in gromos. I Read some old messages on the argument, does it 
already exist a version of the Amber force field written in gromacs format?

In the meantime ma and Alessandro Laio have written a small program to convert 
Amber topologies and coordinates into Gromos and Gromacs topologies and 
coordinates. It is still a bit experimental (i.e. not extensively tested), but 
it seems to work fine. Let me know if this could be of interest to somebody.

Finally I would like to know if there is any project to incorporate some kind 
of implicit solvent model in gromacs.
Thanks for your answers!
