There is a neat application that can do that for all gtk apps at once:
piggy# eix gtk-theme-switch
Description: Application for easy change of GTK-Themes
Just launch switch2, click the "+", check the "use font" box, and select
the font you want. You can also get a preview.
Not sure about firefox though. Fonts in firefox can however be changed
easily by going to edit -> preferences -> content -> font & colours.
OOo has the "tools -> options" menu to change fonts.
For QT apps, there's qtconfig, provided by qt, which you probably have
installed if you run QT apps.
There is also this page on the wiki:
Hope this helps.
