    Are there any free font editors (ttf) for OS X?

    MisterMe is pointing you in the right direction. I've never found a good free font editor, but FontLab makes a simple and relatively inexpensive app called TypeTool. Free demo (crippleware), full version $99. As font apps go, that's very cheap. And it does everything I need, as I'm not a professional type designer.

    yeah, all i need to do is a couple simple things, i don't even want it for developing an actual font, and i can't find a single app that does it for free.

    Not to put too fine a point on things, but what you want does not exist. Even simple font editors sell in the $100 range. The full-function editors are expensive. If you want to call the tune, you have to pay the piper. There is one caveat to this. Apple offers a suit of font editors at no charge--free. However, they are commandline tools and not GUI apps.
