for that I tried two way

What I have tried:

C# Code :

1- :
C#
StiFontCollection.AddFontFile(@"pack://application:,,,/FNT/#B Titr");

this case will show this error :
System.NotSupportedException: 'The given path's format is not supported.'

2- :
C#
var fntpath = Assembly.GetEntryAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream("WpfApp5.FNT.BTITRBD.TTF");
            StiFontCollection.AddFontFile(fntpath.ToString());

and in this fntpath.ToString() is null !

The AddFontFile method expects the path of a physical file on disk. You cannot pass in a pack: URI, because it doesn't understand that format. And you cannot just call .ToString() on a Stream, since that won't produce any meaningful information.

You need to extract your font file to a temporary file, and pass the path to that file to the AddFontFile method.
C#
string tempPath = Path.GetTempPath();
string fileName = "WpfApp5.FNT.BTITRBD.TTF";
string fontPath = Path.Combine(tempPath, fileName);
if (!File.Exists(fontPath))
{
    using (var stream = Assembly.GetEntryAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(fileName))
    using (var output = File.Create(fontPath))
    {
        stream.CopyTo(output);
    }
}

StiFontCollection.AddFontFile(fontPath);
