The plugin directory should be writable in order to install a plugin from Moodle admin interface.

You can try this:

There are three ways how the plugin code can be deployed into Moodle:
1] Plugin code may be deployed from within Moodle, either directly from the Moodle plugins directory OR
2] by uploading a ZIP file
The web server process has to have write access to the plugin type folder where the new plugin is to be installed in order to use first two methods.
3] Alternatively, a plugin may be deployed manually at the server.

Moodle docs on this:

For method 3, you will have to know the location to place the plugin code.
This you will usually specified in the plugin description or in plugins github repo's description.

For Font family plugin: 
In Useful links, there is a 'Source control URL', which is the link to the plugins github repo. 
Here, in the 'Installation', 
you will find that the plugin needs to be placed in - 'lib/editor/atto/plugins' directory under 'moodle/' folder in your system.
So, after downloading the plugin code/dir, you can extract it and place it directly in the location mentioned for that plugin in moodle directory.
Then, open up your local moodle site in the browser and go to:
- Site administration -> Notifications
This should prompt you about the newly added plugin and you can proceed with the steps shown there.

Let us know if you have any further doubts / issues.
