I want to fill in a sentence with blank spaces on Google Docs from information that I can provide from Google Sheets. Is this possible?

"For my student number X = [student_number], the required power is [motor_power] kW, and the SMALLEST motor that can meet the required transmitted power requirement has a rated speed of [motor_rpm] RPM."

I want to embed or link a cell from Google Sheets to autofill the [boxes] in Google Docs

Is this something that is possible?

As Ruben pointed out, there is no simple dynamic way to "autofill" the "boxes" in a Google Docs text document with data from a Google Sheet.

But it is fairly straightforward to do the same statically: use a mail merge utility such as AutoCrat. See the AutoCrat User's Guide for more info — you are probably looking for the Single Document output mode option.
