Only partially, I think.  FreeType might be useful to map the input
character code (if such a thing is used in EMF) to a glyph name or
glyph index.

TrueType and OpenType fonts with TrueType outlines should be converted
to Type 42 fonts.  OpenType fonts with PS outlines should be converted
to CFF, which can be then wrapped as a PostScript font resource.

Font directory?

In case of using PS level 2 operators, just embed the fonts and use
the `glyphshow' operator which allows direct access to the glyph name.
