He's not suggesting you hide it, but in order to use it, you need to enable the use of custom fonts. See:
When you enable custom fonts- with USE_ALT_FONTS- it also enables several other fonts that are hidden by default on the Kindle. Many choose to hide those extra fonts since they take up a lot of the font menu space- leaving little room for extra fonts. The KUAL extension simply hides those extra fonts. See this for more info:
I hope the Hacked Up Reader and KoReader will be the only programs that will see YaHei, if possible. It seems KoReader can load its custom fonts
I haven't used KoReader. Hackedup Reader allows you to choose a default font from the currently installed fonts- including user-added fonts.
Edit: Just tried KoReader. Looks like you can just drop your fonts right into KoReaders font folder.
