Since most valve covers have torque specifications to avoid warping the cover and mangling the new gasket (this may be why it is leaking), I wouldn't recommend replacing it without a service manual at hand. There are several offered on eBay with a range of prices:

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


Your valve cover gasket is leaking, allowing oil to get into the spark plug holes. You'll need to replace the valve cover gasket.

Oil can leak of anywhere under car. You need to look at everything to determine where oil is coming from. Could be valve cover gasket, could be a seal, could be oil pan gasket, could be loose oil filter, etc. You have to look for area with wet looking oil, and start with that.

i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

Oil leak on right side under top engine cover


your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.

There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.
