[XeTeX] Question about emulated font features.

First off, I want to say that I have absolutely been happy so far with
my use of XeTeX, and it has filled a hole in what I have wanted out of
the eTeX software that I have been using up until I found this.
However, there is a slight issue that I have not with XeTeX, but with
many of the fonts that I use: They do not support OpenType features, do
not have variants for things like old-style numbers, small caps, etc.
I was wondering if these font features can be emulated (of course at the
cost of appearance) in XeTeX/XeLaTeX, by XeTex itself, or if there need
to be some sort of complex macros developed in order to do it. Also, I
would be interested in emulating the slanted (not italic) letter style;
is this also possible?
