For the unsalted butter, you could use vegan margarine or solid coconut oil, For the heavy cream, you could use full fat canned coconut milk or a vegan soy creamer. For the cream cheese, there are several options. You could buy commercial vegan cream cheese, or you can make your own "cream cheese" using either tofu as a base or cashews as a base. In fact right now for breakfast I am having toast with homemade almond cream cheese.
To the OP, agar is a great substitute for gelatin! I use it to make solid almond cheese slices, and have used it to make a vegan version of lemon meringue pie. It is amazing how creative and imaginitive we can be as veggies!
