don't the recent gromacs tools allow to use VMD molfile plugins?
that would take care of the trajectory files. with energy data you
are out in the cold, since VMD (or molfile) doesn't handle that.

have you searched the mailing list archives? this is a
topic showing up repeatedly, and perhaps somebody
posted some instructions at some point.
