wonky? please define...
BUT you can make AMAZING things (with or without this plugin) :
Anyway, i think this kind of use is very rare and is more an illustration (even art) than a regular use, so does it worth making a (complex) font ?
Here is an example with the the glyphs "a" "b" and "q". I've colored them for readbility.
More seriously, you have tu put all your glyphs at the same place in illustrator on the bottom left of your page. The bottom of your page will be the base line in fontlab. Then you'll just have to copy and paste it in Fontlab.

Not new. These softwares are from Fontlab. You have to create a font with bitfonter (http://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/bitfonter/
) and save it as a photofont file (.phf) then you need a photofont plugin to make it work. The plugin is free for photoshop, indesign and xpress : http://www.fontlab.com/photofont/photofont-start/
edit : oh, and no CS5 and 6 support for the plugin... too bad
Not that simple, indeed.

It's really hard to find some equivalent based on a "mind-blowing" explanation
What do you like in this font exactly ? what are the details that you like ?
Have you tried to browse the serif theme ? http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=502&text=AbBbCcDdEeFfGgHhIiJjKkLl

Oh, and btw, Kat is right : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Font
& "Typeface" is "police de caractères" in french.
