Thank you for your reply. SO you mean I can just define the bond in one moleculetype.As what you said, I have to renumber all atoms from one of the moleculetypes,
starting at N+1, with N being the number of the last atom of the first moleculetype .Then I wonder which molecule type the atom N+1 belongs to . Also, I wonder how to define the new atom N+1's moleculetype in the gro file . I just am not sure about that. Can you give me much more information about that?
Thank you very much.

Hi He Yang, Justin,

Bonds can only be defined within moleculetypes, not between them. So
you'll need to combine moleculetypes to create a bond between groups.
For this you have to renumber all atoms from one of the moleculetypes,
starting at N+1, with N being the number of the last atom of the first
moleculetype. You also have to renumber the indices for all other
blocks ([bonds], [angles], etc...). Then combine the blocks and
finally add the new bond. If it is a proper bond, you should also
consider adding the angles and dihedrals involved in the interaction.
Note again, merging to create a bond does not mean adding multiple
moleculetypes in one topol.top!
