It is possible to use data from two epw files in EnergyPlus?

Dear community, I am trying to do an energy simulation of a case study with a courtyard. I have run a cfd simulation to know the courtyard temperature (which is not the same as in the outdoors, given the tempering effect of the courtyard's microclimate). Now, I want to perform an energy simulation of the building, using the outdoor epw file but also using the cfd results as boundary conditions of the courtyard surfaces. I am new in Energy Plus. I have used it through Honeybee before, but I think I need to go to the idf itself to modify it to achieve what I want. At the moment, I have tried to use the other side coefficient in the courtyard surfaces. However, this allows me to change surface temperatures, bet then radiation is not accounted. For that reason, I am not sure if this way is correct. Has anybody tried something similar? do you have an idea about how to proceed to do this? I haven't found information about using different temperature data apart from the OSC option.

Thank you in advance. Victoria.

This might be possible with the EnergyManagementSystem. Running a model and checking the EDD file (using this is useful), it looks like the temperature could be set with an actuator at per-surface level.
