Download PCL (SFP) soft font to pcl6 interpreter?

There's probably a simple answer to this (and the answer is probably "No"), but I hope it's OK to ask anyway: Using pcl6 to generate a PDF file, is there any way to download a PCL soft font to the interpreter together with the actual PCL print job so that the interpreter will use the soft font in the same way a physical printer would use a downloaded font? I understand that the font would need to be downloaded before each job, that it wouldn't be persistent. I do know that I can *embed* a font in the PCL stream of a print job (I use that technique when printing from WordPerfect for DOS to pcl6), but I wonder if it's possible to achieve the same thing without embedding the font. I suppose I'm asking if there's already a command-line switch that would look something like -download fontname.sfp Thanks for any help, though my guess is that the answer will simply be, "Sorry, can't be done."
