How can I create separate faces in order to remove portions of extruded part?

Hi, I am trying to recreate a blueprint. I have attached the blue print and my current model to help describe my problem.

 

Basically, I need to edit the side profile of my part (currently a standard rectangular extrusion) into having a circular top and bottom, pics will explain. I was wondering if there was a way to separate the face that I am working on into multiple faces and then select them to delete using a trim entities type function for extruded parts...? if that exists..? I haven't thought of another way to approach it and haven't found any support for this approach lol, so let me know if you even think that it is possible, or if i need to go back to the original sketch and extrude the part in a different way... I am open to anything.

 

Please take a look at the pictures and let me know if you have an idea as to how to remove the portions of my part that keep me from resembling the blueprint.
