I pulled my plugs out, and they have oil on top of plgs covering the wires and also on bottom side of plugs. I thought this may be the valve colver gasket gone bad, but obviously I have a feeling its worse than that. Please help

I'll bet the plug was very well with oil, even the tip. Right? Did the car run? I suspect that it did. So, it is time for a valve cover gasket kit to be put in. Get the wires out of the way and take off the four cover nuts and remove the valve cover. Get the old gasket completely off both cover and head. You will see the holes for the plugs and the black gaskets for them. Those will be replaced as will the gaskets around the cover nuts. Put it all back together, use the proper torque on the nuts and everything should be fine.

The last orings that you are talking about will more than likely be for the injectors. That is your option to put them on and it surely won't hurt to do that.

Huh? Those are some pretty darn big injectors. Injector o-rings do not come in a valve cover kit for any honda 4cyl i've seen.
