Replace planes around a sphere with a different object/model

So I'm trying to use the Import > Replace command to replace a number of planes with a 3d model I've made, in this case a bent cone and it replaces ALL of the planes with just 1 cone instead of placing numerous instances of the cone where the planes used to be. How can this be done?

If you have access to MCG you could try QuadScatter.

Merge in the new object, select it and then go to Tools>Align>Clone and Align
And then go to Pick List and select all of the objects you want to replace, in the parameters you can set it to match the position/rotation/scale and set it to use instances.

Then--very important, it won't actually do anything yet, you need to check Link to Destination and then uncheck it, for some reason the tool requires you to mess with the settings in some way to get it to work. After that you can click Apply and you'll have your new objects placed, but you'll also have to select the old objects and delete them.
