Note that questions about using gtk should go to gtk-list or

GtkTextIter iter;

gtk_text_buffer_get_end_iter (buffer, &iter);
gtk_text_buffer_insert (buffer, &iter, "Hello", -1);

to scroll the cursor onscreen do
gtk_text_view_scroll_mark_onscreen (textview, 
                                    gtk_text_buffer_get_insert (buffer));

Has to be done manually (manually add tags). There's a bug in bugzilla
discussing adding markup support.

gtk_widget_modify_font() on the text view is the easiest thing for
affecting the whole widget.
