If you add a support blocker and scale it to say, .4 thick, and set it to print as a normal model, then you can place it adjacent to your real model so that it become part of the real model.  If you were to scale the X and Y large enough you could make your own raft and then place your model on top of it.

You could load the "Tab Anti-Warping" plugin from the MarketPlace and play around with that as well.  The anti-warp tabs are round and are commonly called Elephant Ears.

    I think you will need to design a custom support brim and add it to the model.

     

    This photo shows a 1mm custom brim.  You see the chamfer I added at the part line to make it easier to trim off.  The chamfer is .4mm thick at the bottom of the chamfer so it has a bit more strength.  It worked well.  If you do something like that you can cover both problem holes.

    My first print with the addition of multiple layers to the initial brim. I'm feeling like my first "hello world!" 🤣

    New test part ... Close to the final result, Still need to manage the retract but works with the Z-hop and a different First Layer height.
