I cannot work out how to set the Page Setup for an existing file to a specific paper size from within Finalescript.

Any tips?

(OS X - and I need to change the Page Setup in the File menu, not the Page Size in Page Layout).

But you can use Applescript:
(Copy in a new script and save, it processes a folder of files).

Hope this helps.

I don't know if this is too late, but in Windows this works perfect for me:

//Change <File/Page setup>
menu item "Page Setup"
dropdown "A4" near "Size"
check "Portrait"
press "ok"
