comment Editing ligature table
@egreg thanks for the feedback. I just want to know how to do something new with TeX, so that's why I put my original question as an inquiry about the TeXBook. I already know how to pre-process the input file and/or write simple macros.

comment Editing ligature table
@erreka yes that's what I want to do. I have a lengthy text of some environmental regulations in plain ascii, and would like to make an easier-to-read handbook for those who have to refer to them frequently.

@egreg ...OK so you meant that it was unfortunate that Knuth was writing prior to Unicode.

comment Editing ligature table
@egreg OK, understood. In my application I have a long plain text file that I'd like to typeset for easier reading, with some sequences (such as CO2) that should be rendered with subscripts (CO$_2$). My idea was to write handle the subscripts through a ligature to minimize the amount of pre-processing that would need to be done on the text file.

@egreg your comment is intriguing. I think you're saying that prior to Unicode, it was not possible to switch around the positions of glyphs on a font table; but that it became possible with Unicode, which is unfortunate.

@egreg for the scaling solution would the OP want to use an optical font size corresponding to the intended actual size?

if it is this kind of last-minute situation i think you could just make hard changes to the .bib and .aux files. .

@RyanReich good point. I've altered the question to avoid that easy solution.

comment How to typeset an exhibition catalogue
look into the geometry package for adjusting page size, layout and orientation mid-document. those catalogs don't look like too big of a typesetting challenge. you just need some totally sweet horizontal rules.
