Choose my own fonts in Chrome?

Is there an extension that lets use my own font choices in Chrone? Firefox has an option that doesn't let web sites choose fonts and I want something like that. There's one called Plainclothes and it does too many other things.

Don't worry, I won't use Comic Sans

I'm having trouble choosing which font(s) to use -- for example, for a flyer or poster. I don't have a graphic design background or much experience with it, but sometimes I have to design simple pieces for my job. Are there any introductory online resources that can help me learn more so that no one will point and laugh when they see a flyer I made? I'll be looking at this thread and this thread, too. My main fear is that I'll put something together and someone will point and laugh and say, "Oh no, you used THAT font?"

Kaishu font, but written with a ballpoint pen, not a brush

Does anyone know of a free Traditional Chinese kaishu-style font that looks like it was written with a ballpoint pen or pencil (not a calligraphic pen or brush)?
