Yes.  Well, sort of.

No such thing.  The window manager uses the fonts within the X
environment, as made available at start-up.  With XFree86, this is defined
in your /etc/XF86Config file.  But see my remarks about TrueType.

Yes, as long as the font is available.

>Can I replace it with a TrueType font?

Yes, if you use a TrueType font server.  There's a free one included in
the latest XFree86.  You should read the relevant info provided by XFree
before deciding whether it'll help you.

Sorry, but almost nothing in X is ever easy, for any reasonable
definition of "easy". It's powerful, yes, but it's baroque!  Still,
there's more info (at least about TrueType) at the end of the current FAQ.
