The oil around the plug may be a sign that the valve-cover needs a new gasket. Oil on the plugs can cause a misfire but it is important that you check everything over. The misfire could be due to defective wires, boots, coils, spark-plug/s, injector/s, and so much more. Take a look at the cars maintenance history, Maybe it is over due for a complete tune-up or oil change. The car is 11years old, how many miles are on it? How was it running before this?

SOURCE: oil around 1 spark plug well.
this could simply mean that too much oil has been added and overflowed on to the engine.if the vehicule runs well and is not noisy i would not worry about it. the spark plugs should be inspected to make sure they are seating properly.always start the threading of the plug to the head by hand.

SOURCE: oil around the spark plugs
This is likely your spark plug tube seals. They come with valve cover gaskets because you will need to replace both in a job. You should also probably replace the spark plugs themselves, as the ends are probably fouled.
If you are interested in doing this job yourself, I would suggest going down to your auto parts store of choice and purchasing a repair manual for your car. Haynes is the book of choice, typically. It will show you pictures of the valve cover being removed.
