Do you think it might be possible to make it pull from my Kit instead?

Not all the icons I want exist in the Free version, but it seems like if you link to your online kit, you can make your own icons and put them in there.

The kit code is <script src="https://kit.fontawesome.com/7ef8040ce0.js" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

I tried putting the URL into the code you gave on the Cookbook but that didn’t work.

If this is too much trouble no need to respond as I can manage without them. But if you can answer it easily, I’d be grateful.

If you are trying to use a font different from "FontAwesome Free", installing it will likely be different -- if you need assistance, please provide more information.
