Or leave out the .ff:
pdb2gmx -f 1ytt_refine_001.pdb -ff amber99sb -o box.gro -p topol.top

However, when I do pdb2gmx -f 1ytt_refine_001.pdb -ff amber99sb.ff -o box.gro -p topol.top, I get an error saying Could not find force field 'amber99sb.ff' in current directory, install tree or GMXDATA path.

Try selecting interactively, not using -ff.
