One easy way to use cream cheese frosting without having to worry about how soft it is, is to use it as a filling rather than the frosting itself. What I mean is pipe a dam around each layer of cake in regular buttercream and then use the cream cheese frosting as the filling inside of the dam of buttercream. I hope that helps :)
