Running from Home Plate to First Baseelite major league runners can do from 3.5 to 4.0. an average time would be anywhere from 4.3 to 5.3. i was personally timed the other day at a 3.7 but my best however is a 3.6. the fastest time ever "recoreded" was mickie mantle at 3.1s

That may be the times for Baseball.

Colleges want less than 3 seconds home to first, the closer t 2.5 seconds the better. Keeping in mind the distance is 60' for softball, not 90'.

In softball is the first basemen allowed to stand right on top of the base when a runner is running to the firstbase?

Yes, however it is not recommended because if the first basemen is on the base while the runner is running and the runner runs into the first basemen there will be no calls made on interference and injury is very possible. This is why you have the orange/white double first bases in youth softball. The first baseman can actually be called for interference if they are blocking the white base in youth softball just as they can for blocking second or third.
