is the pronunciation of skjorta correct here? Sounds very different from google translator. Not that I trust GT all the time, but in general there the pronunciation is very accurate

Yes, it's correct.

I kind of hear an "F" at the beginning, am I right?

No, it's a Sj-sound.

Any tips on how to make that sound? Ive been doing a kind of Hf sound for words like this one the whole time D:

It's hard to explain in text in English, but I usually try to approximate it to a German/Scottish CH-sound, but softer and slightly more fronted.

The pronunciation here is much more similar to how a native speaker would say it than Google's is.

I use forvo.com for pronunciation by native speakers. It's great, real people instead of a TTS like GT.
