The linux xterm has an X resource that sets the font (size included):

XTerm*VT100*Font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed-*-*-120-*-*-c-*-iso8859-15
Write that in a file, do xrdb -merge filename, and any new xterms launched during that X session will get the new font. The 120 in the fontspec above is the size, BTW, in tenths of points.

There's also the -fn command line option that sets the font (using the same type of fontspec - an X fontspec - as above).

Check the man page for the aix xterm to see if it supports the same options (it should).
