An antiquated report dev tool I have to use only allows logos if they are
part of a custom font.

How do I create and install a true type font with a couple of images, one for the logo
another for a signature to appear on the report?

Try Google: free icon font maker

It will give you quite some options to make icon/logo fonts for free.

The professional way is however to scan the logo and signature and trace it with autotrace or hand draw it within Illustrator. Then copy it over to a font making software like FontLab and export it as a font.

But try what links suit you the best.
