Hi Paul,

My best advice is to put the values in by hand after you have written 
the PDBQS file, but you will have to look at the original Stouten paper 
(or similar atom types in your protein) and compare the atom types in 
your "non-standard" residues, selecting the values that most closely 

You can use ADT as well as addsol to add the solvation parameters.

I hope this helps,
