Is it possible to capture the intersection of a line and a surface of revolution?

These are two constructions I have made, trying to get intersect of line and surface.

Didn't find a way to work with only the two objects g and a, but it's possible to work with A, B, f, g.

Assuming that A and B stay on the axis (as in your example), it'd be possible to just transfer everything into 2D and produce a solution there (see frndmrsl's solutions). I made a more general solution with no restrictions on the position of A and B. The only assumptions are that the definitions of g and a stay as they are (e.g. no swapping the order of points in the definition of g or rotating around another axis for a or some such).

try y^2+z^2=x instead a

in general no

Thanks for the responses. A Geogebra novice, I assumed in general it should be possible, but it apparently isn’t.
