Regarding the location of fonts, if you have installed windows version of
ghostscript), the fonts come with it.
In texmf tree, it is under the directory fonts/type1/urw.  In my texlive2009

installation it is in the directories under
It must be in similar directory in other distributions.
The file names of the fonts in these directories are different.
For example, the font viewer program in linux gives the name of the
font in the subdirectory times  with file name utmb8a.pfb as Nimbus Roman
No9 L.  If you search for a font
with file name Nimbus Roman, you will never find it!

If you want put 8 pages in one page, the pdfpages
may do the job for you.  You may have to define a custom page
size using geometry package.
Another option is looking at memoir class documentation of memoir.
It talks of stock sizes, etc, but I haven't gone through it carefully.
Best of luck
