When re-painting what is the best way to mask off the door jambs and shut lines to keep paint from getting in at the door gaps and hood gaps etc. while spraying the body panels?

You could tape the jam and then put in thick foam like canopy tape to take up the gap.

I outline the parts I want to mask with just 3/4" tape first, then stick paper (6"-18") to that. I dont suggest plastic because some kinds get paint on it and it flakes right off falling in your new paint just from the paint gun air pressure. If you paint the same color, I try to get almost the edge of the panel so the break line dont show...you can even lightly sand it off later. If you change colors, you need to tape back farther so the original color dont show in the gaps. I personally dont like the foam seal, because it can squeeze out or in, ruining where you break it.

Didn't all Fieros come with black door jambs and inner panels?

All I've ever seen or heard yes.
(Well the underside of panels like the decklid and hood were not really black but a sort of gray. I actually think that may have not been the same shade every year but it was never body color.)

Yes, but some color is on the very edges. The edges inside the hood and deck lid are painted car color though.

That's what I like to do. I usually only leave the two roof panels on when I paint a Fiero.
It takes a LOT of taping to paint one put together - you have to tape off & cover EVERYTHING that is not getting painted including the bottom of the hood & decklid, & FULLY cover the door openings so as not to get overspray on the interior (cause Roger says I'm "REALLY ANAL" about getting overspray on the interior.... (ever tried to clean overspray off of EVERYTHING in your interior?).
Also, the bumpers are very hard to paint on the car, even on jackstands. You really need to be able to shoot paint from behind the front cover to get the openings fully painted.

With the very little bit of the jams that needs painted ( I use a hobby airbrush) on a Fiero, as long as your masked 6" away from the paint, theres no overspray. My high end Accuspray gun also makes virtually no overspray in the air. I painted my jams with black interiors and didnt get anything that didnt wipe off with a Calif Duster. On a restoration job, the cars I did didnt have any interior in them.

Even with masking off the entire door opening, engine bay, and trunk area, I can mask off a Fiero completely in a an hour. All I remove are tail lights, headlite covers and wing/rack. I even mask off the wheel wells at the lip. I run a strand of insulated electric wire under the windshield lip so I can paint the roof under it. If someone wants a panel off paintjob, the price automaticly doubles for material and labor. Guy down the street did his own...panel off. He scratched 1/2 the panels putting it back together and had to repaint them anyway...on the car...and it didnt match what he already painted. So now he has a shiney painted POS.

All later model cars are that easy since they stopped doing chrome. Pretty much you got glass and head/tail lights and your done. Now a 58 Buick or Olds was an all day masking job...I think a 1/4 ton of the car was chrome.

I did my new 86 Mustang with a color change (because they wouldnt order it the color I wanted). I pulled it in the shop at 8AM and drove it home at lunch. It was a show car job (time didnt include color sand and buff though, for the next day). Changed if from black to burgundy-wine.
