I’ve also met this kind of problem and it had really bothered me for a long time.

Fortunately, I ran into a fantastic software:Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for MAC.

It can convert MXF files with 2, 4, 8 or more audio channels to Apple ProRes files and it is also able to work completely to convert multi-track video files.
Aunsoft TransMXF Pro for Mac can split a long file into several short parts and keep its high quality. Also, merging into one file is allowed with this software.
One of its features is that it mainly focuses on the conversion from MXF to many other formats such as ProRes, MP4, MOV, AVI and so on.
Hope it will be helpful to you :)

Final Cut Pro does not like to work with P2 MXF files; that I’ve tried before. But you can transfer MXF to Prores as below:
