Just about any will work, but CHARMM and AMBER are most commonly used for
systems like these. You should investigate (in the literature) the suitability
of current parameter sets in light of how they might affect properties of
interest (e.g. AMBER99 is a bad choice for DNA because it distorts over time,
but more recent parmbsc1 is good, similarly CHARMM36 is vastly better than
CHARMM27 for nucleic acids).

Simulating a protein-DNA complex is no different from a protein in water.
You've got a biomolecule in aqueous solvent. The protocol is generally the same.
