How to project a face onto a surface?

OnShape still doesn't have 3D sketches. So in leu of that, I'm working around this lacking by drawing distorted face shapes in a planar sketch, which I then project onto a 3D surface. Well, I WANT to project these sketch faces into a 3D surface. But so far I've not been able to find a means of projection. The Extrude can't do it. Project Curve obviously doesn't work, because it projects a flat sketch face into another flat sketch. I've also tried using Project Body by @MBartlett_Tek_Pac, but it doesn't allow projection onto a lofted or thickened shape.

This document shows a simple characterization of the challenge. How can I project the flat shape onto the surface of the 3D shape above it?

Thanks for any help.
