For acetylated lysine, you only need charge values in a force field library.
You could use R.E.D. Server to generate a new FF library for this
modified amino-acid.

You need to prepare a P2N file & you generate automatically the FF
libraries for the N-term, C-term & central fragments and the dipeptide
from this dipeptide in a single step.

(You also need to decide which conformation to use for the side chain
& backbone)
