how can I use a font loaded in memory (i.e. pointer to data from .ttf file) with Xft? Is it posible or do I have to provide the file some other way?

I'm not entirely sure how, but you may be able to specify a file in a new pattern to FontConfig and then have Xft use it. Xft uses FreeType 2 internally and FreeType 2 is able to use a truetype or other supported font loaded into memory. If you're not particularly worried about fitting in with other GUI apps (you are specifying your own font, after all), perhaps using FreeType 2 directly is a solution.
