The whole point of XeLaTeX is to work in unicode, so no. If you have legacy documents in applemac, either save them using TextEdit (for ex) in UTF-8, or keep using pdfTeX, which supports that encoding.

Use \setromanfont{Frutiger LT Std}, it will do the rest combined with the normal italics or bold declarations.
