I think what you want is covered in a brief note I wrote some time ago:
The title of the article may seem irrelevant:
    [texhax] How can I "condense" or "narrow" an existing font? -- solution
but I think it covers what you need -- how to define a new font -- and 
gives pointers to detailed instructions.

    Good luck,
