The requirement for my document is to have times new roman font type with font size of 12 at the main body and size 8 for page number.

I'm new to latex and I've looked it up in the documentation for memoir class but got even more confused than ever as I found different class option for different types of text size and options as shown in Table 3.7 of the attached linked documentation.

Can anyone please enlighten me on this matter? Many thanks in advance

If you use the standard memoir headings, it suffices to add these lines in your preamble:

\makeevenfoot{plain}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}
\makeoddfoot{plain}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}
\makeevenhead{headings}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}{\slshape\leftmark}
\makeoddhead{headings}{\slshape\rightmark}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}

In fact, if you don't specify otherwise the page styles used by memoir are empty, plain, and headings.

MWE

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\makeevenfoot{plain}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}
\makeoddfoot{plain}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}
\makeevenhead{headings}{\scriptsize\thepage}{}{\slshape\leftmark}
\makeoddhead{headings}{\slshape\rightmark}{}{\scriptsize\thepage}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\tableofcontents

\mainmatter
\chapter{Test}
\lipsum[1-4]
\section{A section}
\lipsum[1-5]
\end{document} 

Output:
