What I can do is write them in another font and change it afterwords. But that is not making sense as it's showing up as red squares in Text Frame and as well when converted to PDF. But, as I said, they show up as normal in Story Editor.

It sounds like there is something wrong with the font(s). Showing up in 
Story Editor isn't necessarily helpful, since it only means that the 
glyph is there for the Story Editor display font.

What type of fonts are these? TTF, OTF, PS1?
