Probably, memoir.cls might be the best choice for you, where documents
can use 9pt, 10pt, 11pt, 12pt, 14pt or 17pt as the base font size.

Rai> Is `Times Roman' same as `Times New Roman'?

Yes and No, they look same, but of two different foundries. You might
want to take a look at Charles Bigelow's article on what's the
difference between Times Roman and Times New Roman?, available at:

Rai> What is the name of default font?

The default font in TeX is Computer Modern Roman which is designed by
Don Knuth.
