The file name does not matter, if long as you write your 
own \installfont commands.  Just regard "8a" as a synonym 
for "not reencoded".

I'm sorry, your original posting did not imply this.

First approach:  Create a VF that takes the capitals 
from the titling font and the rest from the regular one.


Then modify the existing .fd file, so that this VF is used
above a certain font size.

Of course, this requires the titling font to match the
regular lowercase letters.  I don't know whether this is
true; maybe the font was made for all-caps usage only.
