Severity modification with discrete severity
Suppose frequency is neg.bin and severity is geometric. If I want to eliminate the probability of X=0 do I multiply beta in the frequency rv by 1P (X=0)? Then if I have N* then P(S=1)=P(N*=1)P(X=1) where X is the unmodified geometric. Is this how it works?

Do you know how to find the payment per payment rv when I am given an aggregate deductible? I'm given that the aggregate deductible is 2, and I'm trying to calculate P(S=0) and P(S=1). If I have N* then P(S=0) = P(N*=0). Are you saying that P(S=1) = P(N*=1)P(Y^p = 1). The concept of payment per payment is confusing in the context of aggregate deductible.

Do it like you'd do any other problem with an aggregate deductible and discrete severity distribution, but when finding P(S=1), P(S=2), etc, use the modified frequency distribution and the payment per payment distribution (divide each severity probability by P[X>0]).
