I don't use ProsaII here, so can't give you a working script, but you'd write a function such as:
def prosaII(mdl): """Returns the ProsaII score of the given model."""
# Write the current model to a PDB file, for ProsaII mdl.write(file='prosaII-input.pdb')
# (insert Python code here to generate a prosaII input file)
# Run prosaII with the generated input file and PDB os.system('prosaII prosaII-input.script')
# (insert Python code here to parse the prosaII output, and # put the score into the Python variable 'pscore')
# delete temporary files os.delete('prosaII-input.pdb') os.delete('prosaII-input.script')
# Return the score to Modeller return ('ProsaII score', pscore)
Then you would simply pass this 'prosaII' function to 'assess_methods' rather than (or as well as) the normal assess.GA341 or assess.DOPE.
The rest is left as an exercise for the reader. ;) I suggest that the completed script be put into the Modeller wiki at http://salilab.org/modeller/wiki/ so everybody can use it.

I don't know if these scripts are still available or usable - sorry.
