Unfortunately not comprehensively.
There's https://github.com/openlilylib/oll-core/wikiwhich explains how
to obtain openLilyLib
https://github.com/openlilylib/notation-fonts/gives a short overview
on how the notation-fonts package is used.
several usage examples (along with compiled PDF files).
I'm not sure where installing additional fonts in LilyPond is
explained, but in a nutshell: you have to identify
the /usr/share/lilypond/current/fonts/directory within a given
LilyPond installation, and drop the OTF and SVG font files in the
corresponding subdirectory (.woff files go into SVG).Best practice for
this is storing all your fonts in one central location and place links
into the LilyPond directory.
If you use a current Frescobaldi the tool Tools=>Document fonts
provides a convenient interface for manging fonts (installation and
creating the input code).
