Tips to run Docking/ doping Calculations using Firefly-8.0.1

Dear Sir,
Ever since I have started working on Firefly, I have been thinking of studying the doping and docking phenomena on various samples. But because DFT is a really expensive calculation, so I am on the backfoot. Could you please suggest me a simpler way to find the doping or docking sites for any foreign atoms on any molecules?
Point me if I am wrong.... Does this solve my purpose if I attach the foreign atom on various sites of molecule under study and run MM calculations? Of course it will not give me accurate energies but is it sufficient to conclude and comment on the favourable doping/docking site? And then can run more accurate DFT calcs for other properties?

Regards,
