I'm currently using ConTeXt version:

You should update your context installation. This is more than 5 year old!
I'd like to use the Advent Pro font, so I downloaded the font and have 7 ttf files available.
After looking around for some manual I found: "Integrating TrueType Fonts into ConTEXt" by Thomas A. Schmitz.
That is meant for MkII. Unless there is a specific reason for you to use MkII (like working with an old setup being used in production), you should use MkIV. One of the advantage of MkIV is that it is MUCH easier to work with TTF and OTF fonts.
I did a standalone installation years ago of this version of ConTeXt, and don't dare to upgrade because I might run into other issues, sorry!
You can install standalone in a parallel directory. If something goes wrong with the installation, you can continue using your current installation.
