Not sure if this is what you want, but you can set the font and sizes from the
command line. What I do is instead of launching Eterm directly, I created a
script to launch it with the settings (fonts) I want:

exec /usr/bin/Eterm -F drift --bold-font \
drift -c Blue -g 110x40 -L 400 -n Node1 --shade 50 "$@"

  exit $? 

>From 'man Eterm':

       --bold-font font
              Sets the bold text font to font.

       -F font, --font font
              Sets the normal text font to font.

       --default-font-index num
              Specifies the index of the default (normal) text font.

       --font1 font


       --font4 font
              Sets the font at the specified index (1-4) to font.

Also, you can change fonts/sizes on-the-fly by pressing shift and either the
plus or minus keys.
