I have not tested this, but I'll bet dollars to donuts that you can do
this with Scribus. Create a new document, place the PDF page X in the
default frame, create a new frame and in that add your signature file,
drag the signature frame over to where it belongs. Export PDF. And now
use a free PDF2FAX service.

There are many ways to do it.

Let me see... the original is a PDF. Let's assume it is a PDF form which
is filled in the computer. Then print it to file.

- Open the file in gimp.
- Open another file that contains the scanned photo of your signature
(make sure the background is the same; if not, paint it).
- Superpose both.
- Print the result to PDF or paper.

FAX it out.

If you do not have a fax-modem machine, or if the land line will not
admit sending faxes, go to a corner shop that sends faxes. Here (Spain)
the post office will do it, with the advantage that it is official in
court (there is an ancient local curse about courts and winning).

There are also services that you email them a document and they fax it
for you. Some ISPs do it. My old cell-phone company did it, a decade ago
or so! I think I sent an SMS, and they faxed it. I tried once.
