This file should be put into  
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/enc/dvips/tetex (+ sudo  
texhash) or into ~/Library/texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/tetex (without  
texhash), i.e. /Users/ireich/Library/texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/tetex.

ly1myriadpro.fd has not to do with fonts, it's more like a sty or cls  
file. You better put into  
/Users/ireich/Library/texmf/tex/latex/<supplier of font, i.e. adobe,  
monotype, bh ...>

No map file is mentioned in the log, but could be dvips does not  
mention it (I prefer pdfTeX) ...

In your LaTeX file you can probably use every inputenc(oding).  
a_yi6hsz.enc *might* re-encode the PFB file in a way that when you type  
x you'll see an x too in the DVI or PDF file. But I don't think this is  
the proper use of otftotfm, I think it asks you to decide which font  
encoding you wish to have in the PFB (and AFM) file. Traditionally this  
should be 8a(.enc), the Adobe StandardEncoding. And you can invoke  
otftotfm a second time with the 8x(.enc), which will produce an expert  
font set, i.e. one with Old Style Figures and Small Caps (SC&OSF). For  
this you *will* have to use the OpenType features!

Ingo, could be that you need a bit of fontinst too -- probably in  
summer I'll knew more. At least check whether otftotfm created a map  
file. Without this neither dvips nor pdftex would find the PFB font  
file(s) with the glyph programmes which shapes you want to see on  
screen or on paper or on both. The map file belongs into  
/Users/ireich/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap. After this you'll  
have to invoke 'sudo updmap --enable Map=<name.map>' which puts the map  
file's contents into psfonts.map etc.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
