Let's say you have:

TextArea ta = new TextArea();
Label label = new Label();
Button button1 = new Button();
Button button2 = new Button();

You can set the font by doing:

Font f1 = new Font(name1, style, size);
Font f2 = new Font(name2, style, size);
Font f3 = new Font(name3, style, size);

ta.setFont(f1);
label.setFont(f2);
button1.setFont(f3);

You can set the color by:

ta.setForeground(Color.red);
label.setForeground(Color.blue);
button1.setForeground(Color.yellow);
