Ghostscript will do PS to PS, but I forget the details.

ps2ps may or may not do what you need it to do.  I haven't had a
postscript printer for a while, but I seem to recall that you needed
to tell Ghostscript to embed the fonts in the output .ps, or you just
got "simpler and faster" spew of formatting and codepoints.  ;-)
