Well, I'd try to find a company that is doing that in the country where you live so that you can either redirect your current fax number to a number of the company without to much additional costs or that the number you rent (if they offer such a possibility) is a number that isn't making it overly expensive for those who want to send a fax to you.
But I don't think you'll find one for free as you need phone capacity to handle multiple connections and the infrastructure to handle those. (and believe me: hardware to handle multiple faxes at the same time can easily cost multiple 10'000$)
I'm not getting it. When you receive a fax to your PC, why would you print it out? What makes a fax different from a PDF file?
(Oh, so you don't have the phone line connected to your PC? Well, why not? I set that up more than 20 years ago at home. At work, faxes are picked up by the PABX and sent to us as an email enclosure, but that wasn't set up until later, more like ten years ago.)
As Glenn as already pointed out, for the legal profession, a fax is considered to be the equivalent of an original, but not so e-mails. I suspect that has more to do with technology outpacing regulations than people not believing an e-mail has not been tampered with before being ultimately received.
And, yes, it is possible to have a fax received and put into an e-mail document as a PDF, but that doesn't necessarily mean every law office has the time, money or desire to implement that solution.
