I added the font choice command specifically for altering the font used
for chord names; the way I did it means what you set (for the sans font)
applies all things that LilyPond uses a sans serif font for. (I did that
because it is more widely useful).

But you can set the font to use for each sort of thing independently -
in the case of chord names the object is ChordName. The exact syntax you
would need to look in the LilyPond docs for, but if you look in the
script for the ChordChartStaff command you will see examples of setting
ChordName properties:
...
\\override ChordName.Y-extent = ##f
\\override ChordName.extra-spacing-width=#'(+inf.0 .
-inf.0)
\\override ChordName.extra-offset = #'(0 . -2.5)
\\override BarLine.bar-extent = #'(-3.5 . 4.2)
\\override BarLine #'hair-thickness = #1.2 "
"
\\override ChordName.extra-offset = #'(0 . -2.5)
....
