That's very subjective, but if it is for you it's fine with me. :-)

Sure.  All things that should line up should be specified first in the
summary line format using a monospaced font, and all other things should
be appended with whatever font you prefer.

For example, take that one:

  "%1{%U%R┃%(%-23,23f%)┃ %*%B %}%2{%s}\n"

Every format spec surrounded by %1{...} will be fontified using the
gnus-face-1 face, and everything surrounded by %2{...} with gnus-face-2.
You may use as many different faces as you like.

Then you can M-x customize-face RET gnus-face-1 RET to some monospaced
font, and gnus-face-2 used for the subject of messages to some
proportional font.
