Does anyone know how to insert custom curtain wall panels into a curtain system that has an angled/sloped top edge similar to a gable endwall? If so please provide any suggestions or feed.

Model the panel which way? I have a model/mass that I have applied a curtain wall too. The panels are not square, or most are not.  I cannot apply one of my created panels. Is there a way to place a parameter on the outside edges so they can adjust to the angle?

Not quite sure what you are asking, but it looks like you applied a stock Revit template curtain system which is pre-defined with a 10'x5' spacing.

First, duplicate that style or change its type parameters to something that works with the module of your buildings floor to floor height and vertical spacing.

For angled parts you may have to create a seperate system on an angle.

If after that there are funky little edge panels that don't get created, the new 2011 generative components can solve that problem.  One of the reasons to switch to 2011 if you have not done so.  The conceptual mass modeler in 2011 would work well for this project as it has some of the advanced features to handle odd shapes and angles.

Tom is right, ONLY in 2011 you have the new Adaptive Component wich is awesome BUT also in 2010 you have the new Conceptual Mass where you can create the the shape of mass you want, divide the surface like you want, then create the panel in the "Metric/Imperial Curtain Panel Pattern Based" and apply to the surfaces like you can see in the images below...
