Yes, you should use CGenFF when using the CHARMM force field. They're
compatible by design.
But I can't guarantee that you'll even be able to create a topology; CGenFF is
for organic molecules. Any metal parameters would have to come from CHARMM
itself, but you still haven't told me what that metal is so I don't know if
CHARMM will cover it...
