Looking at the "back view", I would like to make a curve from the bottom left to the upper right of the yellow plane. I'm stumped as how to do this except to zoom in and delete each polygon. Any help is appreciated.

Unless I'm missing something... Easiest would probably be to (1) create a cylinder with a diameter that matches the curvature you need and place it into position so that it cuts into your yellow plane. (2) Cut and paste the cylinder into a background layer (to use it as the cutting tool) and (3) use the boolean subtraction tool to take the curved bite out of the yellow plane.

You could also use the curve tool and then freeze the curve so you have a polygon in the shape that you want. From there you could extrude the polygon.

Pick points of the edge of the sphere and off the corners of the yellow polys, make splines and then patch them. It will match the shape of the sphere.
