I sometimes skew a square to make a sort of 3D layer. (as in the picture below). I do this by converting the object to path and then dragging the 2 left nodes up. The same technique does not work with a circle, now I am wondering if I can do a similar effect with circles.
Thank you in advance.

In order to skew an object you don't necessary need to convert it to path.

You can click twice on the object and use the side arrows to skew it:

Skew an object

Please note that exists also a Perspective tool in the Extension menu.
