This isn't a good translation. We would say, I'm lying down on the sofa and it would still have the sense of movement.

My impression in this sentence is that the action has been completed and that the person is already in the position of lying down. Is this correct way to understand "fekszem le" (or "lefekszem") versus "fekszem"?

"Lefekszem" is moving, "fekszem" is stationary. They are not one-to-one correspondents to the English continuous or perfect tenses.

Why can't it just be lying? More common in england to just say lying.

I'm not lying on the couch, but on the bed. Why is COUCH not correct?

Rejected couch... reported. At least where I live, there's no difference between a sofa and a couch (except that we'd never really say sofa)
