I don't know if that'll help you or not.
I know nothing about sanskrit or unicode fonts, but a search for "sanskrit unicode fonts" showed ONLY that site.

Sanskrit fonts all already integrated in widows. I just don't know how to use them (how to make shortcuts to using them in Word). For example font; Ś. when i point on it (in Character Map) i got this value; U+0512.

You can make shortcuts to Sanscrit Unicode characters using Word's AutoCorrect feature.

In Macintosh Word 98, you do this by using the Insert...Symbol menu item. Choose a Sanscrit font, then find and select the Sanscrit symbol you need. Next, click the AutoCorrect button, and in the resulting pop-up window enter the shortcut combination you want in the Replace field. Make sure the Formatted box is checked.

If you are doing more than typing a few Sanscrit characters in an English text, then you may wish to change the code page. You can do this from the Keyboards control panel in Windows. In so doing, your keyboard will be mapped directly to Sanscrit characters.

From the Keyboards control panel, you can also set up hot keys to go back and forth between Sanscrit and English.
