Hard to say much, at least for me, without knowing more details about the starting PDF and how the tails are going to be modified.

One approximate approach that may be feasible is to form the CDF of the new PDF, either exactly or via numerical integration as the case may be, and then model the resulting CDF as a piecewise linear distribution
