I know I can install any Language and fonts by going clicking Dash->Settings->Language Support->Install/Remove Languages but how can I do this if I'm using Ubuntu Server and I do not have a GUI.

If for example you want to install Arabic, you would, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install language-support-ar

For complete list of ISO language codes see here
