I've copied this to the user list, which is the right place for this
type of question.

Have you installed Lilypond?  If you do, the fonts should be installed
with it.

What do you mean by "generate lilypond text-based scores"?  Lilypond
scores do not have Scheme syntax, although Scheme syntax is used in
modifying display properties.  In the past, people have used Scheme
(inside a Lilypond input file) and Python (to create a Lilypond input
file) as tools for creating random music for guitar practice.

See  and
following links for how both python and scheme were used.

If this is not what you're thinking of, try to explain a bit more, and
I'm sure somebody on -user will help.
