To the op. You can only make it tiramisu flavored which means coffee, mascarpone and some type of liquor (optional) . You can't make a true soaked cake to stack it.
I would maybe incorporate some espresso into the yellow cake mix or brush with espresso, and use a mascarpone egg and whipped cream mix for the filling. You can even use a buttercream chocolate mocha frosting on top. I always dust each layer my tiramisu with cocoa and then for the top layer also shave some chocolate on top. Just experiment a little first.
