What should I write for "Supporting Documents and Copies of Legalization" part?
For supporting documents, list the primary document you are having authenticated and your proof of identification, usually passport copy.

Copies refers to how many copies of the same document you need authenticated. Each copy will require a fee. Most people only need one copy.
Do I use a digital signature for Section 8?
