My balls are drilled normal T grip with oval thumb. I've found the only way I can have a repeatable clean release is if I put fingers in to first joint and as I'm inserting my thumb slightly relax my palm/thumb and let it fall to the right (inside of ball). This sets the ball so nicely in my palm and I throw the ball really well. However it tends to pull down the skin on the side of my ring finger (making the skin hard) as my grips I feel are rubbing on the sides. Is it possible to drill the finger holes at the angle so they are naturally slanted to the inside of the ball to avoid the rubbing?

Yes, that's an easy fix. Go to your pro shop and show them where the rub spot is, you probably need a lateral finger pitch adjustment or maybe just re alignment of the inserts if you use inserts or some ovaling of the finger holes if you don't use inserts.
