With this idea I will be free to play the melody, and feel how the orchestra (the other tracks) follow me, and not me following the orchestra (play along).

Apart from the other suggestions, you could look at supercollider. This 
has a rhythm tracking ugen, so in principle you could program this to 
generate a tempo to play the midi file from, then send to midi notes to 
your usual synths.

Probably something to try if all else fails though.
