The best way without modifying Sander is to postprocess your MD
trajectory. You can use Carnal and Anal modules to calculate the vdw and
ele energies between ligand and its enviroments. It means you have to
define the Group 1 as ligand and Group 2 as its enviroments (part of
protein or water).

If you want to calculate absolute binding free energy, LIE method is a
good choice. But if you only care about relative binding free energy
between ligands, MMPBSA method is a better choice.

Hope this helps.
