However, the parameters (equilibrium value, energy constant, phase) are not explicitly shown as Gromacs fetch them in the ffbonded table. My question: Is there a simple way to see (without having to look at the code) which parameters are associated to which bond length, bond angle and torsion angle?

grompp -pp writes out a post-processed topology, which may be what you need.

Otherwise you can inspect the contents of the .tpr file to see which 
interaction gets which parameters. That is not easy for a large system, 
but is definitive.
