Sure - you can use the LINK patch. You can see an example using LINK at

But note that this joins the backbones, and if that's really want you
want to do it's probably easier just to stick your two PDBs together
manually by editing the files with a text editor.

If you want to make some other kind of linkage between the two proteins,
you would need to add your own patching residue type for the linker.
Modify top_heav.lib accordingly using the DISU or LINK patches as
examples and see FAQ question #9. You may also need to edit par.lib to
define suitable parameters for any new bonds or angles added by your patch.
