Put your font file in garrysmod/resources/fonts and create it with surface.CreateFont.

In-regards to setting the font it depends on where you’re trying to draw the text. If you’re using the surface library use surface.SetFont. If you’re using markup use the <font> tag. If you’re using draw.SimpleText you can refer to the API, it’s the second argument. (those are just some methods I can think of at the top of my head)

Don’t forget to add it to a workshop addon or send it to the clients with resource.AddFile();
