You cannot specify bold, italics, etc. in the font settings because the text that GTK draws is markup. Markup has its own use of bold and italics.

That is different code.

I can set the default font to bold in vte-2.91 (for example), but then normal and boldface text appear identical. You probably don't want that.

The Terminus font is too light to be readable on my 4K monitor unless I go to larger-than-usual sizes. I suggest using a better font.

The IBM Plex series of fonts is pretty snazzy IMHO and it is FOSS.
I first saw IBM Plex Mono Italic and I said "Wow. What font is that?"
I have since that time been using the IBM Plex fonts in my presentations
and I think they have a nice look.

Quote:
Version 1.0 of the font family had four typefaces, each with 8 weights (Thin, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Text, Medium, Semi-bold, Bold) and true italics to complement them.[2]

IBM Plex Sans – A grotesque sans-serif typeface with a design that was inspired by Franklin Gothic. Other sans-serif classifications were rejected on the basis of being too soft (humanist), inefficient (geometric) and overly perfected (neo-grotesque). Some of Franklin Gothic's features such as the angled terminals, a double-storey g and a horizontal line at the baseline of the 1 are used in IBM Plex Sans. On 7 April 2019, IBM Plex Sans Variable, a variable counterpart to IBM Plex Sans was released.
IBM Plex Sans Condensed – A condensed variant of IBM Plex Sans.
IBM Plex Mono – A monospaced typeface based on IBM Plex Sans. The italic design was inspired by the Italic 12 typeface used on the IBM Selectric typewriter; this is particularly evident with the italicised i, j, t and x letters.
IBM Plex Serif – A transitional serif typeface with a design that was inspired by Bodoni and Janson. Other serif classifications were rejected for being too humanist and outdated (old-style) and too clunky and unrefined for long text (slab-serif). Some of Bodoni's features such as ball terminals and rectangular serifs are used in IBM Plex Serif.

This is a nice mono font, just went to check it out, I use a very similar droid sans mono and wanted to compare the two.
The image probably shows more than I could describe. It's barely visible, but the IBM has vertical lines too thin (for a regular variant).
What appears is that either droid regular is variant thick, or the IBM regular is variant thin. It's no real problem, just affects readability a bit.
Also, the height differs, even though they are both size 12.

Screenshot: droid top & IBM bottom compared 3 times, first low contrast, then regular (with AA), and last high contrast where the thin verticals really show.

I think it is possible to do what you want if you change it inside the GTK3 theme code (CSS). Here is a template on what to change;

Code:
p.normal {
  font-weight: normal;
}

p.thick {
  font-weight: bold;
}

p.thicker {
  font-weight: 900;
}
