I'm responding because this looks like an optics question. However it seems like you want to treat neutrons like optical photons. I'm not sure I understand your question but let me make two suggestions:

To determine neutron flux, use the standard scoring utilities like sensitive detectors and UserSteppingAction. See examples or documentation. I don't recommend trying to alter the physics.

If you really need to have neutrons reflect from a surface, please post in the hadronics forum. One of the experts there might have a suggestion.
