Generally, you can customise the Thunderbird’s look with the files chrome/userChrome.css (for the UI) and chrome/userContent.css (for the message display), both located in your Thunderbird profile folder. (You might have to create them.) In order to find the relevant CSS selector, a DOM inspector might help.
From Set system font in LXDE?: The "Default font" combo is (mis)placed in the "Widget" tab. I really don't understand why they didn't put it in the "Font" tab.
You can widen the font with the FontForge. Select all glyphs, choose Element-Transformations-Transform-Scale, set scale percents on X and save as a new font. But better to find a font that is already wide. You should try Source Code Pro, Input, or Anonymous Pro.
You can try this recipe from the archwiki Qt5 applications can often be run at higher dpi by setting the QT_DEVICE_PIXEL_RATIO environment variable. Note that the variable has to be set to a whole integer, so setting it to 1.5 will not work. This can for instance be enabled by creating a file /etc/profile.d/qt-hidpi.sh export ...
In opensuse this (or very similar) font is called Misc Console and can be installed from the misc-console-font package.
If a font doesn't have different weights they will not be synthesized, so the weight option in emacs (as in any other app) will not work. About Meslo font: I think this patched version lacks rendering hints, which are present in the original Meslo (but it looks like they are not optimized for freetype rendering)

If you need to install a lot of fonts, then copy the files to ~/.fonts or /usr/share/fonts for system-wide installation and issue the command fc-cache -fv.
There are many font managers about and most Linux Distro DE's come with one pre-installed. I use KDE and I can simply drag and drop fonts directly onto my font manager. It does the rest. Just type Font in the search field in your application menu. Not sure if that will work for Linux Mint though. Also it may be possible that non true type fonts don't ...
I've recently encountered this problem on my Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit box. The setupcon command set the fonts to what I had set with dpkg-reconfigure console-setup. I added setupcon to my rc.local, but that left a gap where the font was still wrong (because rc.local is executed after the console is setup), so that wasn't good enough for me. So, I decided to go ...
I don't think the OpenBSD console supports fonts for multibyte encodings. In principle it might be possible to support them in relation to the recent drm(4) code, but I don't think anybody is working on that. You might want to ask on an OpenBSD list for an authoritative answer.
