I can't seem to find any info on the ha'a ha'a. Google didn't help. And nobody seems to sell it.

You could call or email Going Bananas to see if they have any for sale.  I think the height can get near 10 feet if I am not mistaken.

Yeah the top of the banana with the leaves reach at least 10 feet, but the fruit hangs at a reachable height. The fruit is also smaller and has a slight orange tint to it.

The Ha'a Ha'a doesn't get very tall, maybe the fruit is about 4-6 foot above the ground, and it is very prolific.

The true Ha'a Ha'a is believed to be extinct.  And banana variety mislabelling seems to be the norm.  I wonder what you have.  It would be pretty exciting if you actually had the true Ha'a Ha'a.
