Look into the literature and nearly any of the popular simulation textbooks.

Never used this option, but from the description of the option, it calculates
delta(G) relative to an ideal gas state, which sounds completely unrelated to
what you want to accomplish.
Besides, if g_energy could magically solve this difficult problem, no one would
bother with more thorough methods, like PMF or thermodynamic integration.
