Yes.

X resources are supported on Windows as well, but that's unrelated.
Look in the ELisp manual, not in the user manual.  There are many
examples in fontset.el for you to use.

You don't need X resources to create a fontset.  Use
create-fontset-from-fontset-spec to create a new fontset, and
set-fontset-font to add fonts to the fontset.

Make a fontset that includes all these fonts, and then use the fontset
name in the default-frame-alist's 'font' parameter.
