Makita makes a circular saw that takes a 10 1/4 inch blade, so you can cut your slab in one pass, or at least from just one side in multiple passes. The cutout for the cook top doesn’t need to be perfect so you can drill a hole in the four corners and then just connect the dots by plunge cutting. Clamp down a straight edge and take your time. You can finish those cuts in the corners with a hand saw. If the cooktop is held in by some type of clip like a sink would be, you may have to make some type of slots for the clips, maybe a buscuit cutter could do that. Roundover is a design decision and is up to you
