i was wondering if JavaScript is used for allowing users to either download or install a font (by clicking a link).
If so, would anyone know the code for this?
Thanks!

You can just link to the file on your server and it should automatically download with a link, if you want to do it automatically, you can try to use it in a pop up method,
Microsoft has documentation on how to embed fonts into a webpage, so it will automatically download.
