Here you would need to use more 'TeX like' names (ptmr8t.tfm,  
ptmr8r.tfm), you would need to create re-encoded font or font  
auxiliary files (VF, TFM, AFM), MAP file fragments, enable them ...

Make your old PostScript font files available to the Mac OS X system!  
Then you could use XeTeX/XeLaTeX. FontBook (create a group for them)  
can give you the PostScript family names needed by XeTeX to access  
and use the fonts.
