Square font shapes and using them in PaintShop Pro
Access the square / rectangular themed fonts in PaintShop Pro via the text / type tool in the PSP toolbox, select the set name font from the typeface list and then add the artwork as required (A B C D E F G H I J etc).
If you want to use the paths as a native element then you can right click the characters and you will see the option to "convert" menu command - the graphic can then be saved as a native PSP preset format file via the export command (file menu) and saved as a PSPshape format file for future use.
They can also be used as a great source for Picture tubes as well as a source for displacements and environment maps.
To use them as a picture tube you will first have to rasterize the item and then delete the background layer and use the export as a tube command but it does mean all the artworks in the set can be used as a great source for all kinds of wonderful tube effects (you can also combine the layer effects to add interesting shadows and bevels to the previously vector type tube)
They can also be modified such as setting the color to a gradient, patterns, textures etc.

Square font shapes in Photoshop and perspective
You can scale and rotate and shear the type but you cannot apply perspective / distort to the type. There are some workarounds so as exporting the type to Illustrator and working the paths in that environment (ok, if you have the Creative cloud) but you can also convert the type into a shape via the type menu convert command (not ideal but if you are happy with the character selected then you probably won't need it as live type anyway). This does mean you can apply the edit menu transform command and perspective and create some interesting transformations (such as twisting the artwork).
Another option with the type, and this does leave the item as live type, is to use the warp transformation via the edit menu. Apply any of the warp presets and set the bend to 0 and set the horizontal or vertical to a positive or negative value and a limited perspective is added and this type is still editable
Another option is to use smart objects - the results are generally pretty poor but if you set the type to a very large value such as 1000 px then you can convert the characters into a smart object and then re-size to a lot smaller size (such as would be 40px if still type) and then add the perspective transformation. As the image / smart object started as a large source image, the result of the transformations will still be ok (not for everyone though). You can still then edit the character by double clicking the smart object icon in the layers palette
Of course, might be just better to work on the font / characters in Illustrator and copy the results into PS
