I've read that it is not permissable to omit sunnat-e-muakkida in favor of Qadha salaat, but can one omit sunnat-e-gair muakkidah, and pray Qadha instead (as one should prefer Qadha salaat over nafl too)?

A person should not omit sunnat-e-ghair Muakkadah in favour of qadha salat. However if the person is certain that (s)he will neglect their qaza salat if not prayed in place of sunnat-e-ghair muakkadah then it will be permissible. Wallahu alam
