AFAIK, there's no really straightforward `Do this, do that' guide.  Useful
documentation includes:

and the fontinst documentation

fntguide.tex is part of the standard LaTeX distribution, and all the files
are available from CTAN.

There's also:

http://www.phys.washington.edu/~wright/texfonts/        LaTeX fonts docs
http://www-theorie.physik.unizh.ch/~ichbin/texfonts/    LaTeX fonts docs

(one url is dead I think)

(the fontinst documentation gets messy in places, but does explain a lot of
things that aren't mentioned elsewhere that I know of.  I wrote part of it.)
