The elbow author, Nigel, is out of email reach this week and next. In
the meantime I'll offer what I know...

You can try out elbow's capabilities like this:
phenix.elbow --key atp --opt
Note that you get a slightly different result each time you run it;
you may want to try a few runs and compare.
> In addition, how can I know normal distance restraints such as ATP?
You can find the ATP restraints definitions like this:
cd <what you see minus the last two components of the path>
If you run phenix.refine, you can inspect the restraints used by
looking at the .geo file.
> What I only know from the coot is that it shows P-O bond length is
> 1.61A and P-O bond (delocalized double bond) is 1.5A.
I'm not sure if eblow handles the delocalization. You could run elbow
for your molecule to get a starting .cif file, then modify manually
following the standard ATP.cif file.
