Set the name of your modified residue to something unique (in both the input
coordinate file and the .rtp entry).

What .itp file do you want to modify? Making changes to the pdb2gmx output is a
bad idea. You'll have to change any and all subsequent atom numbers, and that
extends to all of the bonded parameters as well, and you will have to add lots
in. This procedure is very error-prone. I would suggest building (and
thoroughly checking) an .rtp entry for your modified residue.
