I would like to know if there is or can be created a floor tag that resembles a ceiling tag that measures the height of the bottom of the floor in the reflected ceiling plan?

You can't create a floor tag to do this but a spot elevation tag will tag the elevation of the bottom of the slab.

I suggest you try.....

BTW - There is no way for a spot elevation to read a family name like a normal ceiling tag or floor tag does.

You said you want it to look like "your ceiling tag".   We have no idea what that looks like.  I have tags that are just ceiling height but my preferred tag has the ceiling family name (like 2x4 SUSP CL'G  ) with the ceiling height AFF.  We don't know what you want but this will NOT be a ceiling tag, it will still be a spot elevation.  Anything other than the elevation will be dumb - not smart.   So lets say you want the tag to say "EXPOSED STRUCTURE / 8'-0" AFF", you would have to add the text portions and the elevation could be read (smart).

There is a new Floor Properties for Elevation at Top and Elevation at Bottom. As long as the floor is flat then you get a good value otherwise is says 'varies'.

 

So I opened your ceiling tag family, changed the Category to Floor and the Label to be Elevation at Bottom and it workd.

 

See attached modified family.

I am in Revit 2021, I used the elevation at bottom. It is giving me the height from first floor not the level the ceiling is on. Any suggestions?

Make sure the ceiling is set to the correct floor level and then ensure the tag is using the "Height Offset from Level Parameter" for the label within the tag family.

Thanks but we are speaking of the bottom of a floor ceiling assembly, not a "ceiling"...

You are not telling us much.  First you say "... the level the ceiling is on"  now you say "...not a "ceiling".

We are architects and we should communicate better than that.

From what I have read, I am going to guess and ask "Do you just have an exposed structure and not a ceiling?"

If that is the case, Revit has always had a solution.  You can put a ceiling in to host your lights and other ceiling mounted elements but that ceiling has no properties.  It is in essance, just a plane and that cn be tagged with a height.
