If these fonts are really PostScript Type 1 (and not TrueType) then  
you won't be able to use them in XeTeX. On the Mac the elder output  
driver xdv2pdf had an option to convert this type of fonts to OTF  
automatically. You could go this way manually (with FontForge), if  
it's allowed by the license.

A second way is offered by the xdvipdfmx output driver: create the  
whole paraphernalia of TFM, VF, FD, STY, MAP, and whatever else  
files ...

Fonts that are not used the same way as traditional TeX fonts need to  
be Unicode encoded. This is not the default with PostScript Type 1  
and 3 fonts.



They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary  
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
