Explanation:
This looks like old Spanish for *hoja*: a lot of modern Spanish used to have *f* at the beginning of words that now start with *h*. So, *foja* would be part of the transition from the latin: *folia* to the modern Spanish *hoja* (foja already has undergone that other transformation, from *li* to *j*)

sheet of paper


Explanation:
Yolanda is correct. "Foja" is usually used in a legal context, and differs from "hoja" in that it always means a sheet of paper. It is derived from Latin "folium", pl. "folia". Yolanda has already explained the consonant changes.

Copy of official document


Explanation:
This is not a literal sheet of paper. The context for this word is for legal documents. Any legal document might have copies for that should be distributed to different parties. Each one of those is called 'foja'
