This is the exact same question as Microtype's tracking feature works with some fonts, not others. Only this time I'm trying to accomplish the same with a different font.

Bob Tennent has kindly converted the IM Fell English fonts into LaTeX fonts after I suggested it to him just a few days ago. But I can't figure out how to set tracking for its small caps font.

The accepted answer by @UlrikeFischer for how to do that with the Alegreya fonts is clearly tailored to that specific font family, and I don't know how to modify it for IM Fell English.

I'd appreciate if someone could show us how to do that, ideally with some explanations of the code so that I wouldn't have to ask again for the next font family I come across.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[tracking = true, letterspace = 500]{microtype}
%\usepackage{Alegreya}
%   \DeclareMicrotypeSet*[tracking]{alegreyasc}{font = */AlegreyaSC-TLF/*/*/*}
\usepackage{imfellEnglish}
    \DeclareMicrotypeSet*[tracking]{imfellenglishsc}{font = */IM_FELL_English_SC-TLF/*/*/*}
\begin{document}
\textsc{Hello world!}
\end{document}

Use the correct family name:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[tracking = true, letterspace = 250]{microtype}
\usepackage{imfellEnglish}

\DeclareMicrotypeSet*[tracking]{imfellenglishsc}{font = */IMFELLEnglishSC-TLF/*/*/*}

\begin{document}

\textsc{Hello world!}

\end{document}

enter image description here

The family name can be deduced from the directory structure of the package distribution:

LY1IMFELLEnglish-TLF.fd
LY1IMFELLEnglishSC-TLF.fd
OT1IMFELLEnglish-TLF.fd
OT1IMFELLEnglishSC-TLF.fd
T1IMFELLEnglish-TLF.fd
T1IMFELLEnglishSC-TLF.fd
TS1IMFELLEnglish-TLF.fd
TS1IMFELLEnglishSC-TLF.fd
imfellEnglish.sty
