What you seem to be asking a few things. 1) how to commit a crime 2) will you get caught and 3) for someone to tell you that it is ok.
What you have been told is correct. It is illegal to bring Cuban Cigars into the US. You can be subject to significant fines for doing so. Thousands of dollars I believe and perhaps worse.
Is it ok because it is only a little crime? NO. Is it ok because everyone else does it? NO Is it ok because you are likely to get away with it? NO. Is it ok because it is a somewhat victomless crime? NO No matter how you might rationalize it, you will be knowingly and willingly breaking the law .
Why not buy some really good Dominican Cigars and enjoy them legally? They will likely be every bit as good and will be perfectly legal.
