Are you trying to talk about gravitational time dilation in the context of a centrifugal acceleration field? Sounds like hogwash.

Yes. In special relativity the only thing that matters is the instantaneous speed, and that's constant here.Can I apply the formula t= gamma * t' if the path is Circular?

You can prove it by integrating the interval along the circular path of you want.
