Find the cone tip. Find the cone base. Decide on how many slices you want. Decide on how many triangles around the side you want. Walk down the cone main axis, calculating vertices, into a triangle list. Draw triangle list.

You could always generate a cone in a 3d modelling package, export it as a format you know how to load in (or is easy to) then use some transformation matrices to change it any way you want.

1. Use google - I'm fairly confident that someone has done this before.

2. Learn how to draw an elipse. If you can do that, then creating a cone would be easy (extrude, scale etc).

3. Post your questions in appropriate forums.
