Well, as one of the parameters to the fluid_synth_set_bank_offset function is the sound font id, you will have to use it after loading.
And in case you use fluid_synth_program_reset, the offset needs to be set before the reset call.
Instead of using the API, you could also use the FluidSynth command line:
load /path/to/sound/font.sf2 0 -10
That would load the soundfont with an offset of 10. So FluidSynths bank 0 will load the soundfont bank 10. The second parameter controls whether to resend a bank select and program change for every channel after loading (1) or not (0).
