I fully concur with Aandi that the text will not reflow and will begin to
overlap in funny ways if you change to a font with different metrics.
Just for fun, though, if you did not care about reflow and overlap, I think
you could change the font in the resources dictionary for the page without
If Ariel and Courier New are really two versions of the same font, then you
could get probably get away with this. Otherwise, you will end up with the
"horrible mess" that Aandi described.
But heed Aandi's warning well. I am posting a theoretical musing for the
interest of experts, not to suggest that what you want to do can really be
done in PDF.
