This hurts my eyes. I can't release books of sheet music
with text that looks like poor MS Word output.

Is there any way to get the old Text quality back?

Have you tried using a font which comes in OTF of TTF formats?

But then it still doesn't use the .tfm files, or does it?

No, but TTF and OTF also contain kerning information too.

Besides, at least on MacOS 10.3.9, including other fonts isn't
trivial at all; at least I couldn't get it to work, and when I
asked here nobody answered that he could.

Put them into ~/.fonts/ or symlink them from there.
