I think it is fairly isolated, you need to define a type1 reader

fonts.formats.pfb = "pfb"
function fonts.readers.pfb(specification)
   -- process specification
   -- load the font and process it
   -- may be apply an afm file
   return tfmtable

Check otfl-fonts-lua.lua for the simple lua font reader, or
otfl-font-otf.lua for the much more complex opentype readers.
