Short answer:  As far as I know, you can use any font you have installed.

Long answer:

TN5250, itself, doesn't know anything about fonts.   When you specify 
font_80 or font_132, it sends the font string that you typed to your
xterm.  It's the xterm that understands fonts.

Therefore, the true question is, "what fonts do I have installed that work
in my xterm?"

As far as I know, you can use any installed font in xterm.  But I can't
say that I've done much experimenting...

On FreeBSD, I can type "xlsfonts" or "xfontsel" to see what fonts are
available to me.   I have no idea if this is available in Linux, but it
might be worth a try.
