[Samba] Is it possible to use Samba as a proxy and cache for a slow CIFS drive ?

what will the proxy be able to do without a caching function ? Can I
mitigate the slow performance of the share with Samba as a proxy or is
there a way to "attach" a cache to it ?
How could a custom VFS module be setup ? Do you know someone who could
do this for me ?
thx & kind regards,

To set "msdfs proxy" parameter, Samba can act as a simple CIFS proxy
(with no cache function).
