I have searched the database and tried various suggestions there and in the
Acrobat help file and cannot find the answer to a simple question.

You have a PDF form

You are filling it out within Acrobat Standard Edition-V6. You intend to save
it as completed form in PDF format, and to print it for later distribution for
others who will sign it (with a pen, in person) on the form's signature lines.

You see the default setting for the words you type-in is inadequate--
i.e., you want to change the font size and the font type from Courier to
New Times Roman and reduce the size to 10 pt or thereabout.

How do you do this?

I have tried various text editing tools. I do not want to change the PDF form
text. I want to fill in blank spaces with a font of my choosing. I gather from
what I read and experimentation that I type in with the default text font and
then so back and change it. I see no way to select a font and make it my
default font. I am NOT REVIEWING the PDF, so sticky notes, underlining,
annotating or highlighting are not what I want to do.
