I need to Model rolling motion of a narrower cone inside a wider cone in simscape multibody. Is it feasible with available library contact models?

There is a Sphere to Cone example in the Simscape Multibody Contact Forces Library. You can model the inner cone as a sphere at the top and bottom of the cone, and the outer cone as a cone. As long as the larger surface of the inner cone does exit the outer cone, this should work for your situation.
