Hi James,
I believe not - one of the main limitations is that there is very little ability to use anything other than the parameters you get from the force field choices listed in the dialog for standard residues and the Antechamber process automatically used for nonstandard residues (i.e. small molecules).  You can only substitute in different partial charges for nonstandard residues, and even that is rather  labor-intensive:

Does it possible to use some scripts instead of GUI for such tasks ? I'll be thankfull for some tutorial or example
