distinction is quite unnecessary here. I think you should create the item
with all the item traits and the creature with all the creature traits and
leave the decision when to look at which character sheet to the gaming
Now having said this, I think it should be easy to add an attack option to
such vermin. Did you have a look at for example the vermin in the RSRD
(File data/d20ogl/srd35/monsters/rsrd_races__vermin.lst)? The
BONUS:WEAPONPROF=... stuff is for correcting the primary/secondary attack
stuff, the NATURALATTACKS entries define its attacks.
As to creating the monster, chose stats, then choose the race, and then
choose one level of the appropriate vermin class (I don't remember if there's
more than one vermin class, and I don't have the files here to look it up).
Perhaps you still need to equip the pseudo weapon (like 'bite') for the
natural attack to show up on the creature's sheet.
Hope that helps,
