I don't know what Microsoft's plans are with this integration but from our experience (when we built the PSF integration for Advanced Installer Express) I can tell it is not easy and it takes a lot of time and effort to get it right (but it will never be perfect).
If you need more automation than what the MSIX Packaging Tool & the PsfTooling (built by Tim M) can offer I recommend you use the free Express edition for Advanced Installer. You can use it for commercial purposes too.
In Advanced Installer there is a dedicated page called AppCompat where most of the PSF integration happens, but we also do a lot of under the hood auto-integration, for example, the support for shortcut arguments or copying resources from the AppData (from your MSIX package) to the PackageCache equivalent folder. (This folder copying/redirection is undergoing a revamp to make all these actions more transparent for our users).
Here is a full webinar dedicated to our PSF integration:
