When installing fonts on Ubuntu, these are picked up by "fontconfig"
and are made available to applications like LibreOffice.
You might install new fonts from the Software Centre or you might
place them manually
into the personal .fonts/ subdirectory.

Now, if a style of a font is not visible in LibreOffice it could be
due to several issues.
Can you give a specific example of a font (preferably, one with a
liberal licence) so we can check?
There is a good list of such fonts at https://fonts.google.com/,
therefore check whether any of your
new fonts in that list and prefer one of those.
