. Download the current CVS of groff.

. Convert Code2000 with FontForge to a PFA file (ignoring the warning
  about more than 256 characters).

. Call `afmtodit' to build a font description file from this PFA.
  Install the font.  This is documented in the man page of `grops'.

. Use the -k (and -K) option to select the proper input encoding
  (which is utf-8, I assume).
