It was truly much easier than I even thought it would be! I didn't even have
to rename the .pfb files form their Adobe names. I simply put the .pfb files
into ~/Library/fonts/type1/adobe/TypeBasics/ without changing their names.
Then I changed updmap.cfg found in texmf.local/web2c/ so that i)LW35 is set
to ADOBE (Adobe fonts with "vendor" filenames) and ii)dvipsDownloadBase35,
pdftexDownloadBase14 and dvipdfmDownloadBase14 were all true. Finally
running `sudo updmap' then set it all up and it just worked!!!
Good Luck,
