I suspect that what causes your problems is a tiny error in step 2 above.
\latinfamily expects AFM files to end in 8a.afm (or 8x.afm, in the case of
an expert font) since the default encoding for most fonts is Adobe's
StandardEncoding, which in the Berry scheme is called 8a (and the encoding
used for expert fonts is called 8x).
According to the fontname bitstrea.map file, the proper Berry scheme names are
baol8a Incised901BT-Light BT 0387 inc901l
baor8a Incised901BT-Roman BT 0388 inc901n
baori8a Incised901BT-Italic BT 0389 inc901i
baob8a Incised901BT-Bold BT 0390 inc901b
baoc8a Incised901BT-Black BT 0391 inc901k
baob8ac Incised901BT-BoldCondensed BT 0467 inc901bc
baop8a Incised901BT-Compact BT 0468 inc901c
baoh8ax Incised901BT-Nord BT 0469 in901xk
baohi8ax Incised901BT-NordItalic BT 0470 in901xki
but you shouldn't feel too bad about not getting it absolutely right on the
first attempt---the Berry scheme isn't precise (in the meaning assigns a
unique name to every font) and I'm pretty sure \latinfamily makes a few
assumptions of its own on how a name should look.
Anyway, if you use the names listed above then it should work much better.
