I think that would about do it, however:

1) If you are adding an entirely new directory, I'm not sure if the rehash is needed or not. It wouldn't hurt, of course, but possibly X will read a new directory anyway ... I don't know how that logic is handled. You could experiment and see.

2) If you do use xset, it will only stay in effect for the current X session. If you leave X and later come back, the changes will be gone. To handle that you could put the FontPaths in xorg.conf if you have one. If you don't want an xorg.conf, however, then you could put the xset statements into your .xinitrc file so they'll execute every time you startx.
