For example, using css rules to set font (but not linking to an internal font file within the ebook).

I need help as I don't want to break any rules.

That would be ok, but there is no guarantee that the user has that font, so you should also specify a fallback position by listing multiple items including a generic one. Also ADE tends to use its own internal font in the absence of embedded fonts and ignores external fonts so don't expect the one you want will be used, i.e. it won't find an external one.
