yes, this is a latex question, nothing to do with pdftex!

if you set a rmdefault family, latex will use it for everything. Math
fonts are just implemented as encodings switches, so OML, OMS fonts
will be needed. You can control this by making omlxx.fd for family xx,
where you can just ask for certain substitutions, or better by
creating virtual math fonts, which requires quite some work,
