How come we can't visually change the Brush Softness on any brush, not just Photoshop vanilla brushes ?

Because sampled brushes (those made from images) don't have any way to control softness or hardness -- there is nothing available to change, because the image you supplied for the brush is the image that will be used.

Only the programmatically generated brushes have a way to control the hardness.
