I am not sure what you mean by Actual Paper, but with your Epson printer & GMG ColorProof I would suggest to use GMG Proofing Media. Why? Because it would be easy for you to achive what you want. GMG Colorproof provides to you with the proof profiles ready to use with their media.

If you want to match the PSO Uncoated ISO12647 (FOGRA47) you could use the GMG ProofPaper matte 140 or also the GMG ProodMedia studio OBA matte 150.
If you want to match PSO Uncoated v3 (FOGRA52) I would recommend to use the GMG ProodMedia studio OBA matte 150.
And for Newsprint, GMG also provides the GMG ProofMedia studio newspaper 76 with the ability to match the WAN-IFRA Newspaper (26 v5) (ISO 12647-3:2013).

I would think you'd need a UV printer to do it right. We do it at my plant sometimes with our P9000. You need to set it for the finest ink dot possible and allow extended drying time between each head pass. It's all about piling and drying. They still need to be coated with something to prevent scuff.

Edit: Using Oris Color Tuner

Color Optimized?

Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
