I just checked on the archive and found an old response wrt using XeTeX:

An option is to switch to XeTeX. Then, with the fontspec package, all
you will have to do is write something like:

\setromanfont{Hoefler Text}
\setsansfont[BoldFont={Gill Sans Bold},Scale=MatchLowercase]{Gill
Sans Light}
\setmonofont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Andale Mono}

This will use Gill Sans Light instead of Gill Sans as the non-bold
sans font.

I hope this is of some use to you.
