It is illegal.
Alright. I'm assuming you want to make this font for personal use only and are purchasing the other three fonts. Anyway, Fontographer is really cool software. Although pretty expensive. What you would literally do is copy and paste glyphs. I'm sure there are some pretty good freeware font editors as well.
