Extract the LWFN resource from the file's resource fork, convert it to  
a real PostScript font file, get from it (or the LWFN resource) an AFM  
file, create PL and VPL files from it, create TFM and VF files from  
them, use fontinst to create FD files and MAP file fragments.

I'd use Venturis ADF (or a look-alike).

AFM: Adobe Font Metrics
PL:  (TeX font) Properties List
VPL: Virtual (TeX font) Properties List
TFM: TeX Font Metrics
VF:  Virtual Font
FD:  Font Definition
MAP: a mapping from a TeX font name to the PostScript or TrueType font  
name, its file name, and the PS font's encoding

Possible programmes used:

(t1dotlessj and more from Eddie Kohler)

All steps "documented" by Google. Could be done 'til end of Easter.
