At present, the simplest way forward is to take the information you have in your
ligand topology from acpype and create an .rtp entry, then allow pdb2gmx to
process the whole thing and build the virtual sites on the ligand.

You can do this, but in addition to specifying the virtual sites (read in the
PDF manual, it's all there), you will need to make the appropriate conversions
in the [atoms] section and also build the coordinates for all virtual sites
(e.g. the things that pdb2gmx does).
