If you have some program to produce the rotated conformations
(e.g. in some rasmol versions you can do that manually) you
can use position restraints in gromacs to hold the molecule in
that conformation, or you generate a series of rotated conformations
and only recalculate energies using the 'mdrun -rerun' option.

Yes - for example the OPLS forcefield, which is all-atom and uses
tip3p water IIRC is available in Gromacs already. You can simply
add a new topology file for any (most) other types of water model
that you would like to use.
P.S., you should be aware of the Gromacs Users mailing list (I cc
this mail to the list also), for which you can subscribe from the
Gromacs homepage www.gromacs.org
Even without subscribing you can browse and search the list archives.
