In particular, there is then a Find Font command under the Type menu in Illustrator which will let you make a global replacement (global on that page, anyway) of all characters on that page that are in font A with the same characters in font B. I've used this to replace Mathematica fonts with other fonts available on my system in vector graphics images that were originally created in and Exported from Mathematica (although I'm realizing as I type that I'm not sure I've ever done this with such a figure after it's been incorporated into a page of a LaTex-typeset PDF document -- seems as if it should still function with the typeset page, however). Should also work with EPS pages, I'd expect.
