    Bosstool does not work and I currently only have 53 mb free on /. I might have to make a symlink but I do not know how to. Can I have some help, please?

    / is the root folder. This is where your jailbreak applications are stored. 58 MB is definitely enough. Most jailbreak apps aren't very big.

    /var is the directory where all of your music, videos, App Store apps, etc. are stored. Once again, 9 gigs of free space is definitely enough.

    Wait until BossTool gets an update (soon) then you can move your fonts around with that.

    If you're really worried about the space on /, delete some of your non-essential apps you downloaded from Cydia. But Only delete the ones you know you downloaded yourself. You don't want to accidentally uninstall the kernel or something..
