## How to customize fonts in the tex-mode?

Sorry maybe this is a beginner's question, but I cannot seem to find an answer after poking around in google for a while.


How do I customize the color and fonts in the tex-mode (or any other mode)? If I am editing a LaTeX file, how do I set the fonts and color for things like \section{section name}, {\bf word}, etc. For example, how do I make "section name" to use a larger font with a different color?


Do I have put code in the .emacs file, or can I use the emacs M-X customize buffer to change values? and where? I am trying to match the settings with my previous Carbon emacs on a Mac, whose default setting looks very beautiful.


I've tried to copy the "tex-mode.el" file from the Carbon emacs package to my current emacs installation. But that does not seem to have any effect.
