Sounds like you may need to increase the hotend temperature a bit.

Different filaments need different temperatures to work well, finding the best temperature for a new filament is a bit of a pain.
Have a look at temperature towers (prints that change the temperature depending on the height) to help find the best temp.

I've had PLA filaments happy at 180C and others that needed 210C.

To help stop the filament unspooling add a bit of resistance to the spool mount, so it drags a little, stop it running free.
