1) MacTeX does come with a number of typefaces beyond Computer/Latin Modern.
I'm quite partial to the TeX Gyre collection, myself. The challenge is to
find out -- or guess -- the name with which to call them.

2) Have you looked into XeLaTeX? It allows you to pick any font your system
knows about, and "just works" for a lot of people. Worth a try.
