Better not!

Someone already asked before.  These fonts are modified versions of
the original URW GaramondNo8 available by getnonfreefonts, but neither
/FontName was changed, nor the /UniqueID, nor font filenames.  This
will definitely clash with the original fonts.

And there are no small caps, only OsF, BTW.

I'll contact the author, but I'd like to have a closer look first.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
