   Yes, see:
        Font.createFont(int fontType, java.io.InputStream src);

   You can simply pass a java.io.FileInputStream (constructed to
reference the font file) as the second argument and I believe 
Font.TRUETYPE_FONT for the first argument.

   If you did that and still got square boxes then almost certainly the 
Font really can't display those characters (at least from Java).  The 
problem is likely because the font is using unofficial unicode code
