You're right, you don't have to wait for steaming, because the Bezzera BZ07 is an HX machine, i.e. the boiler is already on steaming temperature. I guess your issues are just a matter of getting used to your new machines? How many holes does the tip of your steam wand have?

I would say you need to change how you froth milk. Two holes wand should be enough to make the silky smooth milk. I've done many latte art with single hole wand, but it took some practices.
If you still think the steaming power is not enough, try to start frothing from the side of the jar. It would help rotate the milk while you are adding the microform into the milk. As long as you feel it is warm enough simply submerge the tip so that it can rotate faster. In my opinion, the texture of milk is heavily depend on how fast you rotate the milk to stretch out evenly. I hope this can help.
