You just need to combine the contents of ffbonded.itp and ffnonbonded.itp to 
those same files in the parent protein force field.  Copy and paste into the 
relevant directives or (possibly, never tried it this way) rename the 
ffbonded.itp and ffnonbonded.itp files from Slipids and simply #include them in 
your .top after the #include statement for the force field.  Not sure if that 
will work, especially if new atom types are added.
