If you are on windows, you can probably even use one of Microsoft's fonts for 
latex. simsun is extremely big code-point coverage-wise if you want a serif 
font; the newer chinese fonts (msjh , msyh , both sans) are also quite nice. 
I'd stay away from mingliu, mostly because it had not worked work well in the 
past with open-source applications. Be aware that there might be legal issues 
if you choose to distribute your work as pdf with embedded fonts. 

While http://ctext.org/ is well-respected; as even its own commentery says, 
there are different copy-edited versions out there; some of them are 
well-respected too. Writing and quoting texts somewhat extensively from a 
language one doesn't read sounds like a risky task :-). Good luck.

 Your email helped me further, not only concerning

 I already learned before, that especially the
 chapters 40--43 (the canons and explanations) are a bit

 language,  but also to the fact, that the order of the
 paragraphs got into a muddle and some signs probably got
 exchanged mistakenly -- typical problems of handwriting eras

 to what the text meant originally is welcome -- it

 As in the moment I try to write a historical
 text, I would rather like to stay with the original signs,
 eventuell if that adds to my problems...
 Many thanks for your valuable
