NX does support SOL 200 design optimization. I'm not that familiar with the topic though. I suggest that you create a SOL 200 solution and explore the UI to see if it satisfies your needs. Another good source of information related to Nastran support in NX is the NX online help article "Nastran import and export support". That article lists all of the input file entries that are supported by NX. Unfortunately DEQATN and DVPREL2 aren't listed in that article. You may have to define those entries manually via key in text in NX or input file editing outside of NX.

I verified with our development group that DVPREL2 and DEQATN are not supported by NX SOL 200 setup. You'll have to manually enter those entries to your input files either by keyin text in the appropriate locations in NX (bulk data for the two mentioned above) or in the input file itself. The benefit of defining it in NX is that it is saved with the solution, so solving it a 2nd time doesn't require a 2nd input file edit.
