your first problem may fixed by reading

in the FAQ's.

There is a long description *how* you get Mathamtica's
symbols from the extra fonts into PostScript graphics, in the FAQ

In principle you have to ensure that your PostScript interpreter
find the fonts and don't replace the unknown fonts with Courier.
