While I can not comment on previous work on simulating liquid crystals using OpenLB (I will ask around in the group), modifying the collision model and equilibrium scheme is very easy to do.

The momenta, equilibrium and collision operator for each cell are expressed as implementations of the Dynamics class interface. All existing collision / equilibrium models in OpenLB are expressed in this fashion and you may extend and adapt them to fit your use case.
