What are the suggested settings for Visual Studio Code?

See the settings below :

{
    "editor.fontFamily": "MonoLisa",
    "editor.lineHeight": 0,
    "editor.fontLigatures": true,
    "editor.fontSize": 12
}

Setting lineHeight to zero means VS Code will figure out the height automatically based on the font.

How to change the font weight in Visual Studio Code?

In order to alter the font weight, you should use the editor.fontFamily field like this:

{
    "editor.fontFamily": "MonoLisa-Thin"
}

The font family name should match the font file name as above.

Using a number with editor.fontWeight is another option but it is known to be problematic and the solution proposed here is the preferred solution.
