If you're still struggling with this, you can override the font size (not the DPI or
zoom factor) for GTK2 applications by editing .gtkrc-2.0 for the appropriate
user.  Mine has the line 

gtk-font-name="Times New Roman, 12"

which does indeed produce text of the expected font and size.

Scrollbar width should be determined by the styles being applied.  Unfortunately, 
it's been a long time since I last looked into GTK2 styles (I threw together something 
that satisfied me circa 2012 and have left it alone since).  It's probably a setting 
applied to Gtk-Scrollbar:: or Gtk-Range::, though, and the style files are plain text
and can be grepped for examples.
