recently I've found that one of its nitrogens is most likely sp-hybrid, that
means 180-degree angle between its two bonds and orthogonal location of two
planar pi-systems it is involved in. Is it possible to produce an appropriate
topology in such case?

Like this. But with N and two pi-systems orthogonal to each other:

plane_1 - N = plane_2

N is really sp with two bonds on one line.

Sorry, I am not very familiar with Gromacs soon... I have to describe my
structure as a new protein residue (an entry in .rtp file). AFAIK, it is not
possible to make things like [dummies3] in such case... How can I use dummies
