Is this even possible with the vanilla C2 SpriteFont object? If not, is there a plugin available?

I don't believe so, you may need to use two different SpriteFont objects and switch between them.
Hmm, I wonder if this is something that could be modded relatively easily. We're planning on having a number of different pixel fonts and styles, and having so many SpriteFont objects would be less than ideal.
You could probably look inside the runtime.js of the sprite object and see how the "Load image from URL" is handled. Maybe it would be possible to replicate it inside a behavior to mod a SpriteFont object. It's important to inspect how the SpriteFont texture is managed too inside its own runtime.js, so you don't break anything with the behavior.
Silly question... where would I find the runtime.js for the Sprite and SpriteFont objects?
In the installation folder, you'll find the "plugins" runtime and edittime js files under "exporters\html5\plugins\".
