We already have font-wqy-zenhai which is very similar in setup. If you want, 
check out gnu/packages/fonts.scm and just copy the font-wqy-zenhei block and 
modify the url, name and checksum in the copy.

Also, is there a reason wqy-microhei is marked "beta"? Is it not finished? 
What's the difference between wqy-microhei and wqy-zenhei?

If you want to quickly build and use your own packages, the easiest is:

$ mkdir -p ${HOME}/.local/guix/wip
$ export GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH=${HOME}/.local/guix

Then put your own Scheme files in there, containing package definitions. They 
need to be valid Scheme modules. For example the (new) file 
${HOME}/.local/guix/wip/fonts.scm should have the following header:

(define-module (wip fonts)
  #:use-module (ice-9 regex)
  #:use-module (guix utils)
  #:use-module ((guix licenses) #:prefix license:)
  #:use-module (guix packages)
  #:use-module (guix download)
  #:use-module (guix build-system gnu)
  #:use-module (guix build-system trivial)
  #:use-module (gnu packages base)
  #:use-module (gnu packages compression)
  #:use-module (gnu packages fontutils)
  #:use-module (gnu packages perl)
  #:use-module (gnu packages pkg-config)
  #:use-module (gnu packages python)
  #:use-module (gnu packages xorg)
  #:use-module (gnu packages zip))

And then the package definitions should follow, in this manner:

(define-public font-wqy-microhei
    (name "font-wqy-microhei")

Replace "..." by what you copied from font-wqy-zenhai.
