You can (mis-)use the user-tables.
There are separate tables for dispersion and repulsion.
You can fill the one for the dispersion with a 6-12 LJ with the correct 
and the one for repulsion with a 6-10 LJ with the correct sigma
Then for OW-OW you should set the appropriate c6 and c12=0
and for OW-NA the approprate c12 and c6=0.
The manual describes the format of the user tables.
