I don't know what you're asking. nstpcouple and nsttcouple act
independently, though in practice there are restrictions.

If I want to continue from a particular saved frame of the simulation

If you haven't got a checkpoint for that time, then grompp is your only
friend for starting there.

Can I make grompp to number the cpt files that it saves (like
> part0001.cpt, part0002.cpt...) ?

grompp doesn't write checkpoint files. Do you want mdrun -cpnum?
