FS query circular edge on face

Hi! I'm relatively new to featurescript, and I'm wondering if there's a way to query an interior circular edge (or ideally an edge loop) on selected faces (plus also the outer loop of edges on that face). I'm writing a tool that makes 3D printing some geometry more reliable, namely counter-bored or pocketed holes that would normally necessitate printing with supports. The idea is to modify those faces into bridging layers that set up the structure for the part and result in cleaner prints. Below are two images showing what the tool would ideally accomplish in terms of modifying faces:
You should be able to use qLoopEdges (Standard Library Documentation (onshape.com)) to get the outside edge loop.
feature publication coming soon!
Here's a half-baked take on it:
I hope you're always active on the forums! I learn so much.
