For (d) there is not really any trick, it is just using the residue
and atom names. For example, if you knew C1-C6 in LIG are an aromatic
ring, for aromatic-aromatic contacts to PHE you could look for lines
in the contacts output with PHE CG,CD1,CD2,CE1,CE2,CZ such as:
> LIG 1 C1 PHE 168.A CD2 -0.163 3.488
As I mentioned this would be a lot of work since you would have to
know all the atom/res names for a particular type of functional group
such as aromatic ring. Also, I don't think this would work for your
system because looking at what you sent below, your LIG atoms are not
named uniquely (all the carbons are just named C, all the nitrogens
named N, etc.).
