You don't always want a very sharp image, but often you do. It is easy to reduce sharpness, but very hard to increase it.

The ideal is to have a range of lenses in your armoury to suit different occasions. This can include soft focus lenses.

No, it's impossible to increase real sharpness if it wasn't there to begin with.

I wish that more people realized that. I've seen so many images massively sharpened in an attempt to make up for the fact that they weren't sharp to begin with. Of course as you point out that won't work, but people do try, with the result that they get an ugly and painful image to look at.
