LaTeX works best with PostScript Type 1 fonts – and these are also
the basis for the Fourier package. BTW, which glyphs will you find
that are not yet provided by Fourier? It has 16 accompanying PS Type
1 fonts ...

Create via AFM files the necessary TFM and VF files, FD files too,
and also MAP file fragment(s). Then update the MAP files and the ls-R
"hash" file(s). Here is a description: http://homepage.mac.com/
bkerstetter/tex/fonttutorial-current.html. You can also read Philipp
Lehman's “Font Installation Guide” (texdoc fontinstallationguide) and/
or the fontinst manual (texdoc fontinst, texdoc intro98, texdoc et99-
font-tables, texdoc et99-font-tutorial).

I don't think so. Mac OS X is not really supporting PostScript Type 1
fonts. When they come wrapped into an OpenType (OTF) format, then
they will be useful.
