If two atoms are supposed to have a bond, then you do not need extraBonds
or any other restraint. You need to tell the software that prepares the
topology (usually psfgen for NAMD) to create a bond between them. That is,
unless there are atoms missing from the PDB file that are supposed to be
between the two residues in question. Then you'll have to make up
coordinates from them (usually via a structural modeling software).
Be patient and try to spend more time on this problem, because for
atomistic simulations the correctness of the initial 3D structure and
connectivity is the most vital ingredient.
