Ubuntu Mono is a TrueType font; I don't think xfontsel displays TrueType
For Emacs 23, you can set the font via the menubar (Options>Set Default
Font...). Click on Options>Save Options to save the setting for the
next time you start Emacs.
For xterm, I'm not sure. There are references to TrueType in the man
page, so you could check there. Also, Googling for
brought up several hits that look like they might help you.
