You can certainly specify different fonts for different parts of you plots.

If you set up your ticks as you've done (TextStyle), then you can use
StyleForm to cutomise other labelling, eg.

Plot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}, 
    PlotLabel -> StyleForm["PlotLabel
    ", FontFamily -> "Times", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 14],
    FrameLabel -> {StyleForm["X axis", FontFamily ->
         "Times", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 
        14, FontSlant -> "Oblique"],
        StyleForm["Y axis", FontFamily -> 
      "Times", FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 15, FontColor -> Red],
        None, None}];
