how should anybody know?
you don't provide any details.

sure, i have generated psf files for polymers.
there is not much to it. also, you don't necessarily
need a topology file to generate the psf file.
you only need that if you want to use a tool
like psfgen.

generating .psf files is easy, but that doesn't
mean that such a file would be useful for you.
