I think that it's easier to use the simplefonts module than the standard
ConTeXt method. I guess one of the advantages of simplefonts is to
invoke font by OS name. I must admit I'm biased here: I don't actually
know how to use the standard ConTeXt font system :-).
Just in case they were needed (sorry if they aren't), two tips:
\setmainfont sets the font for the whole document. If you want only to
use it in a passage or from a given point
OpenType features are enabled for the whole document with
\definefontfeature and they are enabled or disabled using the
four-character tag equals to yes or no.
I hope is clear. Don't hesitate to ask, if anything isn't.
I hope it might help,
