making your own- should you add fresh strawberries? concern would be that is watery. Or add something like strawberry preserves to the cream cheese?

Yeah when you sugar sliced strawberries, a lot of juice comes out. I would either do that and then cook it down or use prepared preserves. Either way it is going to be a lot softer than store bought strawberry flavored cream cheese. I really don't like that stuff and just use plain cream cheese with jam on top.
Make sure the cheese is softened and whipped before you add the fruit. I make a dessert with pie filling and cream cheese and if you don't do that it is hard to blend and looks curdled.
