Hi. As with all ribbing, in the round or flat, you knit stitches as they lie. Which is to say you knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches. If the next stitch looks like a knit stitch, then you knit it, and so forth.
For the decreasing P4 to P3, you have to get the sections that are 4 purls down to 3 purls. You can purl 2 together in each section (on the side where these are purl stitches) or knit 2 together in each section (on the side where these are knit stitches). Basically, you just have to do a decrease in the purl section of the ribbing.
When they tell you to adjust a number to a number of stitches, it only means to increase or decrease evenly across so that you have that number of stitches. for example, if you have 100 stitches and you have to adjust to 110, it means you have to increase 10 stitches in that row evenly across.
As for the NB, I don't know what that stands for. Looks like it's just something that means "take note of what I'm about to tell you".

also, what do they mean here?
After 2 rows dec. all P4’s to P3 = 122-132-142-152-172 sts, and continue the rib K2/P3 (seen from the right side)
then over here do i have to decrease to this # of stitches?
When the piece measures 10 cm K1 row from the right side, at the same time adjusting number of sts evenly on row to 102-110-120-130-142.
then here: what do they mean by stocking sts???
Knit the next row from the wrong side as follows: 1 seam st, 2-2-3-0-2 stocking sts, M.1 over the next 96-104-112-128-136 sts, 2-2-3-0-2 sts of stocking sts and 1 seam st.
then here: what is NB? and would these be 19 rows because M1 consists of 19 rows and 8 st repeats?
Knit 1 repeat – NB: On the rows where the pattern says P from the right side, P over all sts including the 2-2-3-0-2 stocking sts at each side of M.1. At the same time, on the second but last row in M.1 adjust the number of sts to 99-107-123-131-139.
i think i'll stop here for now and wait for some help before trying to continue!!!! this is very confusing.
