$Group = $web.SiteGroups[$GroupName]
$RoleAssignment = $Web.RoleAssignments.GetAssignmentByPrincipal($Group)

#For User, Use:
#$User = $web.EnsureUser("Crescent\Salaudeen")
#$RoleAssignment = $Web.RoleAssignments.GetAssignmentByPrincipal($User)

#Get the permission Levels to Add - Remove
$AddPermissionRole = $web.RoleDefinitions[$PermissionToAdd]
$RemovePermissionRole = $web.RoleDefinitions[$PermissionToRemove]

{
    $RoleAssignment.RoleDefinitionBindings.Add($AddPermissionRole)

}
