I'm pretty sure that what you ask is likely not too hard to do.  On the other hand, I think you will do well to consider the following...

1. Join the mailing list; the folks there will know better what you are trying to do - see

2. Switch from the sf package to the sf package if you can - see  


3. Come up to speed with geospatial data handling in R starting here
