How can I do it?

You'll have to use the Pen Tool to add anchors at correct points along the angle, delete portions of the paths you do not want, then use the Pen Tool to Option/Alt-click anchors and join paths of the arcs.
Once that's done, you can copy/paste paths to the same vector layer.
Photoshop does not offer any features to remove portions of shapes/paths automatically such as the Pathfinder operations in Illustrator or Indesign.
10 second job in Illustrator = 5-10 minutes in Photoshop.
