I indeed see slow redisplay with your test files (but only after
changing 'append' to 'prepend', because otherwise Emacs selects a
different font for the arrows).  But when I looked at the display
closely, I found that the arrows are not displayed using Segoe UI
Emoji font, they are displayed by some other font.  In fact, the only
characters in that test which use the Segoe UI Emoji font are blanks!
Did you try using "C-u C-x =" to see which characters are displayed
using the Emoji font in your case?

I think that's because Segoe UI Emoji doesn't have glyphs for the
arrows, at least on my system.  So I modified your 21028.fixed.el
recipe as follows:

  (dolist (frame (frame-list))
    (dolist (fontset (fontset-list))
      (set-fontset-font fontset 'unicode (font-spec :family "Segoe UI Symbol" 
:registry "iso10646-1") frame 'prepend)
      (set-fontset-font fontset 'unicode (font-spec :family "XITS 
Math":registry "iso10646-1") frame 'prepend)))

  (setq-default prettify-symbols-alist '(("=>" . 8658) (":=" . 8796)))

and the problem went away: the arrows are displayed using Segoe UI
Symbol (which, at least on my system, includes both symbols and
Emoji), and there's no slowdown anymore.
