The file name is : lmmono10-regular
The font name is : LMTypewriter10-Regular

You can do (in context):

\definefontsynonym [MyMono] [file:lmmono10-regular]
\definefontsynonym [MyMono] [name:LMTypewriter10-Regular]

(i'm not sure if xetex is case sensitive)

All th emessages that you see on the console concern xetex calling 
metafont to generate a font which does not exist (a kind of fallback 
behaviour)
