If you want to do anything repeatedly - such as, here, apply a 
particular font - you should make life easy for yourself by creating 
styles for each font.  You could sensibly use character styles or 
paragraph styles for this, depending on your needs.

Once you have defined your styles, yes:
o Go to Tools | Customize... | Keyboard.
o Under Category, expand Styles and select Character or Paragraph as 
o Under Function, select your new style.
o Under Shortcut keys, select your chosen key combination.
o At top right, choose Writer or OpenOffice (generally).
o Click Modify.

I trust this helps.
