ya... you should be able to... if in zip format... you'll need to extract it... get the .ttf files... there should be three... you'll only need one i believe.... rename it to the name of the font... then add it like you would any other font file...

just double checked my fonts... and i'd make a copy so that you still have a good copy just incase... and you can try changing the extension to zip... and the ttf files should be in there... named droidxxx.ttf

You could always just download the font off dafont.com


Here is the "DROID" font from Verizon commercials http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=644351


Or the actual android font from the sdk or easily from here. http://damieng.com/blog/2007/11/14/droid-font-family-courtesy-of-google-ascender



Download the font double click install and your done

You'll have to go into your computer settings and change your default font
