    You can do this with custom number formatting. However, this only works with numbers and not with text.

    This can be done with Conditional Formatting.

    This above all!

    There are some work arounds that are extremely tedious and not always complete:

    1) Write a macro that types in the formula for you (macros have the ability to set the exact font you want). However you either have to manually run the macro every time OR you have to have the macros run automatically whenever a cell changes (this might lead to some hiccups)

    2) Write a macro that shows/hides formulas or cells or rows, etc. This wouldn't work efficiently for the OP's purpose but I have used this to display different formulas and keep the font.

    3) There are certain system fonts that have different symbols in them including superscripts and subscripts, Greek letters, and math operations. E.g. if you open the Character Map in Windows you will see that Times New Roman font has many of these symbols. You can copy and paste​ these directly into any cell in excel and it will stay as that symbol even when used as part of an excel formula. The problem is that, in some bizarre reasoning, there does not exist a font that has a complete set of subscript and superscript characters. For example, Times New Roman only has about half of the letters of the alphabet available as subscripts and none of them are capitalised. We have wingding fonts and fonts with emojis in them but no font has the subscript "f"! So this will work in only a limited number of cases.
