The DUM type has no parameters assigned in ffnonbonded.itp in oplsaa.ff for some
reason. You can easily add it; it has zero mass, zero charge, and zeroes for
sigma and epsilon.

In the manual, Section 5.7.4 there is an example but I don`t understand where the gb_ parameters are coming from:
Unfortunately, the example is for Gromos96, which happens to work differently
from all of the other force fields in Gromacs. The gb_*, ga_*, etc are simply
macros for copying and pasting parameters from ffbonded.itp. The general form
of the topology is always observed; see Table 5.5.

All of that information is in ffbonded.itp, as it is for all force fields.
