Guitar Soft

How to make acoustic guitar softer?

Im trying to make the strings on my acoustic guitar softer n easier to play.
its an electric-acoustic guitar. currently its on stock d'addario stings.
I have tried to lower the action but i think its at its limit already before buzzing, plus its not that high, just hard.

Would it help if i change into light/extra light gauge electric strings?
Do i have to make any truss rod corrections?

thanks you ^_^

I suspect that your problem is due to a nut with grooves that are too shallow. This will make even light gauge strings feel stiff or "hard" as you describe it, especially in when playing notes near the nut. To check the nut, fret the strings at the third fret and look at the gaps between the string and the first fret. The gaps should taper gradually from about the diameter of the "B" string on the low "E" to almost no gap on the high "E". If the gaps are significantly larger than described you will need to have the nut grooves deepened. Unfortunately this requires special tools and skill to do properly so I would advise you get professional help. While they are at it they can install lighter strings and adjust the truss rod for the difference in string tension. Assuming it was set properly in the first place it will probably need to be set slightly looser.
