Why don't you just add
Golden Promise to beersmith? I'd use the default for Maris Otter and change the Lovibond to match that of Golden Promise.
I don't know if you'll get total exact accuracy in terms of the stats like diastatic power, moisture and such, but I'd imagine they're close. But even if those are way different, I can't see how it'd throw your recipe out of whack. It's what I do, in any case. I'm updating Beersmith all the time with new grains from LBHS, varying hop AA%, etc...
Not sure about the golden oats. Look at the simpsons website and see if you can find those details. Color and gravity potential are what you really care about.
