How to draw a circle on an angled plane that intersects with a 2D line

I am trying to draw a circle on an angled face on a valve I made, and am not too sure of the best way to do it. Here are some screenshots:

 

 

Here is a front view showing the angle. I need to use the face at the top that is on a 22* angle or so

Here is a top view showing the 10 holes I need to make at the proper angle. The blue lines are showing where each of my holes will need to be with a fitting on it as well

Here is a more zoomed in view showing the intersect that I need to make a circle

Any help will be greatly appreciated, let me know if you need any different screenshots

That looks like a curving conical surface, rather than an angled [planar] face.  Is that correct?  If so, you won't be able to draw a Circle on it, because a Circle is planar, but something could probably be done to get close to that, or if the goal is to make a hole, of course a Circle can be extruded and the result subtracted.
