Ok, much progress:-)

1. Your command worked as is, no need to translate:-))

2. TeXFont did its magic, with no *apparent* errors (but see below) : 
a. ttf|afm|tfm|vf's are copied to/generated within 
[truetype|afm|tfm|vf]\microsoft\timesnewroman;
b. texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.map generated in \map\pdftex\context
c. texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.tex created in temp dir.

3. Problem: upon compiling texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.tex. I get

===================================================
 TeXExec 5.0 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2004

            executable : pdfetex
                format : cont-en
             inputfile : texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman
                output : pdftex
             interface : en
               options : once

Output written on texnansi-microsoft-timesnewroman.pdf (28 pages, 379871 
bytes)
===================================================

a. Note the warnings;
b. Adobe complains about an error in opening the page (I'm sending you the pdf 
directly)

4. Question: how can I make TeXFont default to C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local instead 
of C:\TeXLive\texmf-local?

I think I'm close to the finish line. Thnx 4 all your help!
