but where did you get the atom types and force field
parameters for your molecule?

this is likely a consequence of not having proper atom types assigned.
you cannot just take some coordinate file and convert it into a pdb/psf
combo without defining all the proper atom types, assigning (partial)
charges, adding topology information and so on. this is what is usually
done by tools like psfgen using a residue/molecule topology template
