Making a cake with cream cheese filling...I'm afraid that once it's covered with fondant it will harden too much?? Any tips?

I don't understand what you mean by harden too much?

I would definitely refrigerate a cream cheese filling unless it is the shelf-stable kind (comes in a sleeve). I refrigerate fondant cakes all the time with no problem at all. I have kept them in the frig for 1 or 2 days max though.

When you bring it out condensation will form. Don't touch it! It will dissipate and the cake will be fine.

I used wilton fondant to practice my fondant skills and i refrigerated the cake b/c of the cream cheese filling and the fondant got really hard...i either didn't roll it thin enough or it's just the wilton fondant...

How are the cream cheese icings in the sleeves?? Do they taste good?
