I like FP4 plus. I use DDX diluted 850ml water 120ml DDX stock I process at 20/68 degrees and process from anywhere between 3-8 minutes depending upon needs. You would need to experiment for exposure.

Just my experience.

You can soften the image by increasing the spacing between the original and the film when you create the mask. Alternatively add a pieces of very fine frosted acetate.
