You have to create it manually. You can add the missing residues by
reading the REMARK lines in the PDB to figure out which ones are
missing, and then perhaps the SEQRES lines to figure out what the
residue types are.

No - complete_pdb does not add missing residues. It adds any missing
*atoms* for any residue - for example, if your input PDB contains only
CA coordinates, it will add (using internal coordinates) the rest of the
backbone and sidechain. But it won't add any residues that aren't in the
PDB in the first place.
