Is it possible to use imported specialty fonts in an outlook html signature, such as importing Google fonts using something like
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=whatever"> in the signature html file?
Or do I need to stick with fonts that are on my machine and really only the ones that I expect will appear on most machines?
And I can't use an image since this is for many users and the signature texts are different.

the font has to be installed on each users machine in order for them to see it. you could take a screensnap of your sig and use the image as your sig. just keep in mind that not all email clients automatically download images with the messages, usually the user has to manually download it to see it

You're very limited on how email clients handle any kind of CSS, so the simple answer is No - you can't do it. Just keep things basic and you'll be OK.
