What are the rules regarding the goalkeeper and the little box in high school soccer?

The "little box" in front of the goal mouth is the goal area. There is no rule governing the goalkeeper and the goal box except that if the keeper is taking a goal kick, the ball must be placed on or within the lines of the goal box to restart play. (Note that the keeper or any of his teammates may take the goal kick - there is no mandate that the keeper take the goal kick.) Following the taking of the goal kick, the ball is considered not to be in play until it crosses out of the associated penalty area, which is the "big box" inside which the defending goalkeeper my use his hands to play the ball according to the Laws of the Game. It is highly unlikely that these rules are modified in high school soccer. It could be fairly said that the sole purpose of the goal area is to define the area from inside which the ball is to be placed in the taking of a goal kick on that restart of play.

What is it called when someone does an indirect free kick and score an own goal?

You cannot score an own-goal directly from an indirect free kick or even a direct free kick. If the kick was taken from inside the kicker's penalty area and did not exit the penalty area before exiting the field, then the restart would be a rekick. If the kick was taken from outside kicker's penalty area or left the penalty area before exiting the field, then the restart would be a corner kick for the attacking team

What is the function of the goal area?

During any goal kick the ball must be placed somewhere within the goal area. Any offense for which the restart is a direct or indirect free kick, then the ball is placed at the top of the goal area (6 yards from goal line) directly out from where the offense occurred. Please note that a penalty kick is an entirely different restart from direct or indirect free kicks. There is a persistent myth about a rule where attackers cannot enter the goal area during active play. It is untrue. Obviously, there are some restrictions during penalty kicks or kicks from the mark.
