SOT: How to install non-standard LaTeX fonts

I know this may be slightly off topic, but I see many non-standard latex 
fonts ( not included in ports, that I'd 
like to use, for example those distributed with the emerald package.

Now, I have two problems:

- The documentation seems to apply to all distributions of LaTeX but 
teTeX. How do I install and make latex/pdflatex aware of these new fonts?

- Installing non-standard fonts not included in ports in the standard 
paths will mess things up, is it possible to install these in a user 
defined path? I am aware of the TEXINPUTS environment variable, is there 
something similar, like FONTINPUTS, I need to set?

Thanks, Erik
