AFAIK, the entire font is embedded in the PDF. On o/s independence, yes,
that is the whole theory behind PDF. There are occasional differences
between PDF viewers that might be though of as platform-related, but in
general, PDF is intended to be platform- and device-independent, and in
practice seems to work pretty well.

Yes, simply don't embed the file. The risk is that if the font is not on the
other system or is different, it may not look as intended.

BTW, you will get faster and better responses to questions like this on the
fop-user list, or, better yet, on a PDF list.
