Are these fonts already used?  I am not looking for existing ones...

this is the place to put them to... you can get them from wherever you want (the windows ttf's should work)

I am testing out an application developed using QT and I am trying to use different fonts to display the languages.  How do I apply these fonts to the current application?

oh, looks like this is controlled by your application, as the ttf's inside the above mentioned directory are only used for X11
