Yes - that is how I usually do it. I also have a scheme with one
'mother.mdp' file, which is modified automatically (by a script)
for EM, MD, position restraints, inclusion of solvent, nsteps, etc.
That is to make sure all other parameters (cut-off, T/P coupling
etc.) are identical between the different runs.

Right. When I use a modified .mdp file for the first time, I always
compare my input .mdp file against the mdout.mdp (using e.g. diff or
xdiff), to see whether grompp has interpreted everyting as I want it.

Right: grompp uses cpp as the first stage in processing your .top and
.itp files. Other than that, it is not used (certainly not by mdrun).
