Seeing as no-one has yet replied, here is my minimal and not very 
thorough answer.  It's what I've just done to change the actual 
fonts being used.

First of all you can try running with the WINEDEBUG=+font to see 
exactly which fonts are being asked for and which are being used 
for them.  You will need to know how to redirect output and look 
through it.

Then you can use regedit to edit the entries in the 
NT/CurrentVersion/FontSubstitutes to tell Wine which font you 
want it to use for each font.

For example I have almost everything to "Bitstream Vera Sans" 
because otherwise it chooses an unacceptable other font.

Alternatively you can go find appropriate TrueType fonts for what 
is requested and install them into 
your .wine/c_drive/windows/fonts directory.

Hopefully that will help.
