In principle, modification of the .hdb is all that you need to do. Did your
additions not fix anything? Or do you just have errors (hopefully fewer) that
persist? The alternative is to upload the structure to the CHARMM-GUI server.
It will process the whole thing and write a coordinate file that is fully
compliant with the CHARMM force field (and provide GROMACS inputs for you).
