I have no opinion on the poll as my favorite font is Google's Noto Serif. As for uploading a font to your Kobo, that is easy peasy.

Just create a folder called fonts and add your fonts to it.

Here is a fairly detailed walkthrough: How to add fonts

Once this directory has been created, simply copy entire font families into it.

A font family consists of four files; one each for Regular, Italic, Bold and BoldItalic.
Here's a link to Noto Serif, to give you a font to experiment with: Noto Serif (just click the purple Download TTF button). You'll download a .zip file. Double click on that and there will be four files: NotoSerif-Bold.ttf, NotoSerif-BoldItalic.ttf, NotoSerif-Italic.ttf and NotoSerif-Regular.ttf. Just dump those in the fonts folder and you're done.

Adding fonts to an ereader was one of Kobo's best selling points, before Amazon updated the Kindle to do the same.
