I don't believe there really is an easier way.
You can download a kernel.org
kernel or the fedora kernel source and
built it to be 64-bit and boot that on a 32-bit userspace and that
will get you around some kernel memory/resource limits, I did that
previously on one of my machines for 6-12 months before doing a clean
reinstall to 64-bit.
I dont know if you can convince dnf to install a 64-bit fedora kernel
on 32-bit userspace, if you can and it boots and it has the right
settings compiled in the kernel by default then that kernel will work
with a complete 32-bit userspace.
