I don't know which fonts are chess fonts but have you tried just using them? 

The following works for me

Style["This is a test of various fonts 0123456789",
    FontFamily -> #, 18] & /@
  {"American Typewriter", "Arial",
   "Papyrus", "Playbill", "Webdings",
   "Zapf Dingbats"} // Column

Hello -> All,

Is there any way to use the fonts available in the Format>Font menu as part
of Style[]?

I am writing a chess program that could really make use of the Chess fonts.
However, it seems that these fonts can only be added on somewhat
superficially, by changing the font of already generated output. I don't see
a way for a function to display them directly, without a human being going
into the Font menu.


Thanks a10^6,
Jason
