For short texts where you want a certain style and size (e.g. a title
page or a poster with few words) \definedfont is the recommended method,
for larger amounts of the text (e.g. the abstract of a book) you can use
\switchtobodyfont to change the size.

The \definebodyfontswitch creates only a command which uses
\switchtobodyfont with a fixed number of arguments.

You put spaces before and after = which aren’t allowed there.
