Non-native geometry and the model rounds aren't necessarily the best in the industry. Best approach, and to machine this with NX's ootb toolpaths, you'll need to add new geometry. Lots of work ahead. Good luck.

Also, this option might be of use to you if you have many parts to make:

Create a supplimentary swept surface to use as your Drive Geometry.

The part file is attached.

 

Also, you may want to consider creating patch surfaces over the holes and an extension surface on the round edge to use in the defined Cut Area.
