Flash can't read content of a directory directly,
alternatively you can creat an xml or text fle, which has fonts name and flash  load it to read the font info..

sorry, not possible to display differnt font-faces as a list in combo box..
you can have only one font for displaying list in comboBox(anyone but only one)

Aneesh ChopraCommented:
you can use listComponent instead of comboBox, just change the combobox instance with list component instance in my sample FLA

list component will show the items in list and also provide functionality to select one or multiple option..
