I've been trying to follow along with this thread, but I'm a little confused at to what your current issue is.
From what I gather, you have fixed ONE of your previous problems by moving a wire on a 3-way switch from the traveler terminal to the common terminal, but you have not yet fixed your issue with switches #1 and #4. Is this correct?
hustler: in post 56 regarding the sink light (switch 2) and the outdoor lite(switch 3)you said: "I traced that one wire and hooked it up to an always hot wire. Both switches work independently from each other. Thank you!
so you have remedied switch #2 which controls the sink light? The sink lite does not turn off now when you turn on the outdoor light?
What wire off of switch #3 did you discover was providing power to switch #2?
Are you still using the same switch #3 still as pictured below...meaning a 3-way switch? You do not need a 3-way switch. That can be changed to a single pole switch...like switch #2.
