Really Alex - RTFM!
man xterm

-leftbar
                Force scrollbar to the left side of VT100 screen.  This 
is  the
                default, unless you have set the rightScrollBar resource.

-rightbar
                Force scrollbar to the right side of VT100 screen.

-fn font
                This option specifies the font to be used for displaying 
normal
                text.  The corresponding resource name is font.   The  
resource
                value default is fixed.

And which font to select?

in shell, type
/usr/bin/xlsfonts

and select one you like
