How can i integrated the 404 error page from sh404sef?

You can't do that directly, as the two are totally unrelated. 

4SEO has an improved 404 error page handling over sh404SEF, gives you more flexibility to handling different errors in different ways. You go to Errors | Error pages to set this up.

If your site is in a language we have a translation for, there should be 2 default error pages: one for 404s and one for all other errors.

You can modify them or add more. For instance, you have a 404 page config that applies to all errors starting with /shop{*}, with a text specific to your e-commerce section and another 404 page rule for all other 404s, with a more generic message. That's also how you can have different error pages per language (one for /fr/{*}, one for /es/{*} and the last one for all other languages). 

These options are under the "When to run" tab.

Then under "What to do", you select which error code the error page applies to (404, 401 not authorized, 403 Forbidden, 500 Internal error,...) and create the content afterwards, with options to suggest similar URLs.

This is fully documented on this page, the 4SEO Error pages documentation, but you can also just click the Help button whenever you see them  below a setting, and it'll show you the corresponding section of the online documentation.

Side note: 404 errors page are not really meant to be beautiful - although I see many "most beautiful 404 page" contests all the time. They are meant to : a/ help your user find their way to what they were looking and b/ Keep them on your site instead of hitting the back button to Google. That's why in 4SEO I tried to improve over sh404SEF and made it possible to respond to errors and help your visitors better.

Best regards
