The manual doesn't clearly indicate (at least to me) how you can access those semibold fonts, for example, by some equivalent of \bfseries. It would be nice to be able to use semibold in addition to bold fonts, or at minimum use semibold rather than bold. I would like to know if and how that could be done before purchasing the extra fonts.

This is part of the reason I chose to try LuaLaTeX and fontspec, that way you can specify the weight with something like
\fontspec[BoldFont={* SemiBold}]{Bickham Pro}
