You can attach the sketch to the edge. I'd have to see your model to say exactly how to go about doing it.
That's the tricky part. I want to be able to sweep a sketch along an edge with arbitrary starting and stopping points. Since that isn't supported, I need to generate my own edge based on those positions and sweep the sketch along it, instead. Further, I anticipate the sketch will be auto-generated or possibly imported from another file, so I'm writing a custom tool to do all of this.
In other words, prior to the sweep, the sweep path doesn't exist and the sketch is arbitrarily placed in the 3D environment. To that point, I had planned on treating the sketch's origin as the point that's always attached to the generated edge to help simplify matters. Thus, hopefully, all I need to do is create a new placement for the sketch... unless there's another way to auto-align the two in a separate operation before sweeping.
