Unfortunately, I don't know plain TeX, I must confess. I think I know what
the problem is, though ---the "TeX names" of Lucida start with `` hl ''. Try
this without any input file:

\font\tenrm = hlhr8y%
\font\tenit = hlhri8y%
\font\sc= hlhrc8y%
\let\rm = \tenrm%

\'Esta es una prueba. \it Y aqu\'{\i} en cursivas. \rm Y debe seguir Lucida.

{\sc Desde la antig\"uedad m\'{a}s remota\dots} Y sigue m\'as texto \dots

This works for me. If it does for you, and as you know plain TeX, you could
built up from here.
