I'm not sure what -0 and -1 you're referring to.
I have the impression that you're referring to the -1 in
-misc-fixed-bold-*-*-*-*-140-75-75-*-*-*-1, in which case it has nothing
to do with Emacs or with fontsets.  It's in your Xresource setting and
specifies a font whose CHARSET_ENCODING is 1 (I suspect that it it intended
to only match fonts whose CHARSET_REGISTRY is iso8859, so that together
you get iso8859-1 which I'm sure you recognize).
But maybe that was obvious and you're actually talking about something else.

Maybe something like

(set-face-font 'default "fontset-ilya")
