I assume you mean TrueType fonts.

If it is like many Linux systems, drag the font file(s) into /usr/share/fonts/truetype

I have zero knowledge of centos, but generally you can make a ~/.fonts dir and put your ttf's in there. They will be noticed by the system and used.

Again, did you mean fonts??
Fonts are everywhere--is there a particular one you are looking for?
