This isn't real clear.  Are you saying that you want to degrade the input
data to recommend items to user clusters?  That usually decreases accuracy

Or are you saying that you want to build a feature based recommender using
cluster as a feature?

Almost certainly.

Is there any better alternative like R?

Almost certainly not.
