You have 2 options

1) Tilt the front of projector up, to raise image. The you have to use keystone correction to "correct" the shape of image. This is not ideal, due to slight resolution loss.

2) Put the projector on a low table, sitting upright.

Not sure what you're trying to do here? Stretch a 4:3 to fill 16:9? Stretch 16:9 to 4:3? Either way it'll look horrible the aspect ratio is too different.

Stretch 4:3 to fit 16:9

Sure see what horrible zoom modes you have on your projector, stretch to fit?. It will look like Junk. People will be really WIDE or really SHORT.

You can zoom in your 4:3 until it is the width you want but you will loose the top and bottom of the screen in a big way.

4:3 is 4:3.
