Further to Grant's reply: You can use any font for your character format. Then in the paragraph designer, Numbering tab, specify the character format you want to use.
For example: 1. Define a character format called ZapfDingbats. In it you can specify the font and the size. 2. Place your insertion point in a bulleted paragraph and open the paragraph designer. 3. Select the Numbering tab and set the character format to ZapfDingbats. 4. In the Autonumber format field, type the character you want to use as the bullet. For example, if you type u and the char format is ZapfDingbats, you will get a diamond-shaped bullet. As Grant said, you'd also need to add a \t (tab), so it would be u\t. 5. Select Update All. Hope that helps.

Define a new Char Tag with the font & size you want Use the "numbering" function of your Bullet Para Tag to define the character used. Specify the Character Format to be your new Char Tag. You can use the properties of the Char Tag to tweak the Bullet size/shape. To adjust the spacing between the bullet and the Text, adjust the first tab setting. (this assumes that your autonumber format uses "\t" after the bullet character.)

Is there a way of completely customise bullet points in FrameMaker to the extent of making the actual bullet (but not the text that follows) larger and also to widen the distance between bullet and text that follows?
