See this tutorial->

This will show you how to add Pt atom types and add the parameters for the
Pt-N bond. As for the error about unfound atom type Cl what force field file
did you load when you ran leap? Do you have a stray chlorine atom in your
pdb file or was this chlorine added by an addions command?

All the best
