I suggested to submit a bug if that's your conclusion.

Look, I'm trying to help you solve your problem.  I don't think I
deserve such a hostile attitude for doing that, do I?

I don't yet see whether the Emacs user manual has an answer.  It has
several examples in the node "Modifying Fontsets" that are very close
to what AFAIU you needed.  Did you see those examples and tried to
follow them?  If so, what didn't work?

I mentioned the ELisp manual because it just happens to have an
example with Japanese, but the examples in the Emacs manual are very
similar, they just use different scripts.
