It may be something like soft-walls potential (0 inside a sphere, and proportional to r^2 outside sphere with force directed to the center of sphere) or something similar. Is it possible with Gromacs? I'm not afraid to mess up with a Gromacs code a little bit if it necessary.

Flat-bottom position restraints will do this.

Use the pull code.  In version 5.1 there is the ability to define as many such 
interactions as you like.
