Also will the cream cheese frosting allow me to add some decorations on the cake. I adding a 1 Direction logo made out of meringue on to the cake, with some chocolate signatures.

Adding meringue decorations  - do that at the very last second before displaying the cake :(  Any moisture will cause them to soften/ loose their shape.

Unless you are referring to what Wilton calls/(or did) meringue icing which is really royal icing.
