I would not be 100% sure. The document is dated 15 March 2018 so they should have known the dates of the 2018 Copa America ? But on the other hand other events whome dates are confirmed are still listed as "TBD" in the document.

yes, it's this year's Copa America that has a place in Tokyo 2020 up for grab (and a second place heading towards a playoff against a CAF team)...

 

as you can read on the official website of the CONMEBOL:

 

"También hay en disputa 1 cupo para el Torneo Olímpico de Fútbol Femenino Tokio 2020 y la selección que ocupe la segunda posición disputará un repechaje contra un equipo de la CAF."

Women's Football Qualification Europe

The qualification process says : The FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 will serve as the qualification for Tokyo 2020. The three (3) highest placed teams of this tournament will qualify for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

Then said:In case not all three (3) places can be allocated, an additional tournament will be organised from the four (4) highest placed teams to determine which NOC gets allocated the quota place.   I do not understand this phrase .¿ In case not all three (3) places can be allocated, ? ¿An additional tournament the four (4) highest placed teams?

it's like in 2016...

 

at the previous world cup only France and Germany did qualify directly because they went further than any other European team...

then there were 2 or more teams that were eliminated in the same round of the world cup...among those teams, the best 4 (according to the fifa world ranking) did play a tournament for the last Olympic spot (last time the tournament was held in the Netherlands between NED, SWE, NOR and SUI and SWE went on to win it and did qualify for Rio 2016, where they also won a medal)...

 

basically, if 3 teams can't be separated by reaching a different stage at the 2019 world cup, then a tournament between the best 4 ranked teams in the fifa world ranking reaching the highest stage of WC will play for the remaining spot(s)...

For 2016 3 teams would have qualified as France, Germany and England were the only 3 European teams to reach the quarterfinal. The tournament was because the British federations could not agree to send a team, for Tokyo 2020 this has been resolved so if the same happened this time GB would accept their quota.

What is the deal with UEFA/FIFA: only England can obtain the quota, right? And in case they qualify, who will be eligible for GB, only English players?

For Football only England can gain the quota (like Scotland in Curling) and at the moment the other home nations are happy for English players to form a GB team without needing any players from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland to join the squad. This only applies to women's football, there will not be a GB men's team competing.
