1. Your rephrasing is also passive voice. It is just a different tense.
Student or Learner
The documents is being couriered to your office address.
1) Is the above sentence in passive voice? If so, what would be the active sentence for it. I understand the active would be:
The documents has been couriered to your office address.
2) If we are using documents (plural), should not we use "are" instead of "is"?
Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

That is incorrect. Your rephrasing above was present perfect passive. The passive voice is indicated by a past participle following a form of the verb "to be".
I sent you a package. (active voice, past tense)
A package was sent to you. (passive voice, past tense)
I have sent you a package. (active voice, present perfect)
A package has been sent to you. (passive voice, present perfect)
