> 2. Does anyone know how pdfTeX can be instructed not to embed them?

In your pdftex.map (in Web2C: ./fonts/pdftex/) you should replace each line
that is related to the font according to this template:

Font Time Roman will be embaded:
ptmr8r NimbusRomNo9L-Regu " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc
<utmr8a.pfb

Font Time Roman will NOT be embaded:
ptmr8r Times-Roman " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc

The same for texansi encoding:
ptmr8y NimbusRomNo9L-Regu " TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont " <texnansi.enc
<utmr8a.pfb
ptmr8y Times-Roman " TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont " <texnansi.enc

Fortunately, now this boring work can be done (in tetex or TeXLive) by
updmap utility:
  updmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 true
  updmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 false
