You could use the R.E.D. Tools or R.E.D. Server for that.

You could define 2 (or 3) building blocks such as the Cysteine
dipeptide & thio-phosphate derivative(s) and use inter-molecular
charge constraint(s) (INTER-MCC) during the fit to reconstruct your
phosphorylated cysteine.

Cysteine dipeptide + thio-phosphate derivative(s) -> phosphorylated

You could start by testing:

     R-SH + Me-S-PO3(2-) -> R-S-PO3(2-)
           INTER-MCC sets to zero
                       + Me-S-PO3H(-) -> R-S-PO3H(-)
           INTER-MCC sets to zero

To study the impact of the INTER-MCC(s) used R.E.D. Server includes by
now a statistics module.

You could follow the approach described .
The molecules are different but a similar approach should work...

See Tutorials .
You could associate the approach defined . (for amino-acid fragments)
  & INTER-MCC as defined .
