You can always force xelatex to use the type1 versions of the fonts:


some text {\fontencoding{LGR}\fontfamily{cmr}\selectfont abcdefgh}


(replace cmr by the firasans family named used with pdflatex). 

But as David wrote it would be better to use unicode fonts together
with  a transliteration (teckit) mapping.
