yes repl valve cover gasket and the plug hole seals that come with gasket set, thats whats leaking

Spark plug 'tube seals'. Some gasket sets don't automatically come with them. Best to get a complete gasket set with the bolt/nut grommets too. Factory parts are best and I strongly suggest you clean everything with brake-clean extremely well and put the gasket on dry & do not over-torque.

Yes that will cause a misfire. Im thinking your plugs are in the middle of the valve cover. If so you need to replace valve cover gasket and do tune up.

I did a tune up on it. Made it a lil better. But still getting oil in spark plug. what causes the oil to get undre the spark plug?

The valve cover gasket is almost surely your problem. Only after I actually had it in front of me could I be more sure.
