Sorry if I wasn't clear. That support package "enables" Win2k to support ExtB - that is, after you run it calls to GDI with surrogates now succeed with correct metrics, etc. The included foint does nto cover ExtB as you note.
Once you have done that, you can use ExtB fonts, such as the one in the Office XP Proofing Tools.

Downloading the support package there and running the download
installs the SimSun-18030 font.
The SimSun-18030 font (a TrueType Collection) does not appear to
cover any Plane Two characters. It does cover CJK Ext A, though,
and also includes base character support for Tibetan and Mongolian.
