I don't think this is possible. If you are using Archicad 23, the new Opening element lets you place rectangular or circular Openings in Slabs. You can also script your own Slab Opening Symbols, which is a 2D Symbol displayed on Stories. However, you cannot script your own Opening to be placed into a Slab.

You can make a wish for this feature, we can vote on it and if it gets enough support, we can submit it to GRAPHISOFT for consideration.
If you do make a wish, please post its link in this thread.
