Do angel investors use services of freelance consultants for checking business plans and technical part of works submitted to them by start-ups? If yes, what is the best way to approach angel investors for offering such services?

I have seen well known angels without expertise in that specific space bring in what I call "due diligence dogs" to sniff out the problems in the business by going in to dig into the founders, board, and other aspects; however, this was only using their own internal trusted person.  I have been asked by angel investors to analyze business plans or ventures, but that is pretty rare and usually they are long term existing clients of my law practice.  

As was said, I wouldn't spend much time or effort on this expecting it to pay well.
