    is it normal practice to embed used fonts in an app if they are not the system font? or is it not necessary if the font being used is a font that comes with the OS, or is standard in Font Book.

    It's certainly not standard practice and is probably illegal as you won't have a license to distribute the fonts anyway. I hope you have a good reason for not using the system font: users expect apps to look standard.
