As others have mentioned, it's kind of non-trivial to do an owner drawn menu
and I've never found it worth the trouble because my users want our programs
to look "like Windows", but perhaps the following links would help you out

Unless every menu item is made owner-draw and everything is drawn by code
in the program,
a nontrivial undertaking.

The lowest level structure I could find seemed to be MENUINFO, and it
doesn't seem to have any provision for font-size. Implementing a
user-managed-menu seems beyond being merely non-trivial, but more like a
nightmare of "devil is in the details" situation.

As far as I know, there is no direct way to change the font of menu bar
itself without changing it for the system (thru system settings). That
impact all the apps.
You can replace menu bar with your own toolbar and then you can have
on all these attributes.
