Is practice putting allowed after hole is completed?

Rule 7-2 provides a decision, a player must not make a practice stroke during the play of one hole. In between two holes they may not take a practice stroke, but may practice chipping or putting on or near the previous putting green, the practice putting green or the teeing ground. But no stroke may be taken from a hazard.

Can YOU practice putting on the green before you have putted your own ball into the hole?

No, this is not allowed, this would be known as testing the putting surface before taking your stroke and would come with a two stroke penalty. In matchplay you may putt on any green on the course prior to the beginning of your match, and after a hole is finished. But not before you take your stroke on any hole.

What is the procedure for putting if the 4th person is off the green but closer to the hole do those further away from the hole but on the green putt first?

If it's matchplay the player who is farthest away ALWAYS go first. If it is stroke play and a player is off the green, but closer than other players, you would usually offer him the chance to go first to come onto the green (that way, the pin can be taken out and kept out) But it is up to the player if they want to come on or not.
