how do I get Sawfishs current font in "-*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-75-* format?
That isn't going to work. Fonts in -*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-75-* format are provided by the X server, and text is drawn by the server. Pango fonts are provided by the client, and text is drawn by the client. They are two completely different methods for outputting text, and may make completely different sets of fonts available. The x_draw_string function calls the appropriate text output function for the specified font. You cannot unconditionally replace it with XDrawText unless it only has to work with fonts available on the X server.
