The question is not clear. E.g.:
"I would like the function to work without actually switching to the
calendar window -- i.e., it should work even when the buffer is buried."
While we clearly can't select the calendar window if the calendar is
not displayed, I don't see why that would make it undesirable to
temporarily select that window when it does exist. E.g.
(with-selected-window (or (get-buffer-window (current-buffer) 0)
Of course, if there are various windows displaying that buffer, things
are more interesting.

Those work just fine (although they don't quite do what you think they do).

Here I lost you again. calendar-cursor-to-visible-date works inside the
calendar buffer, so you can't use it without switching to the
*Calendar* buffer. But that's unrelated to whether or not you select
the corresponding window (if any).
