You are thinking in plain tex. Don't care so much about the
technical details how a font is loaded, think about how you want to
*use* it. Don't forget that LaTeX is about semantic markup. 

If you want to use the 12.2pc font as the default size of the
document, you should redefine \normalsize. 

If you want it only in special places you can define your own font
