For starting jack, I use this one-liner (this also opens Jack control panel)
$ pulseaudio --kill && jack_control start && qjackctl
For 4-channel capture on a single track, I suggest:
File > Add Track, Bus or VCA ... [Ctrl + Shift + N] > select Audio Tracks
... in the Configuration panel look for "Configuration" dropdown and select "4 Channel"
Window > Audio Connections [Alt + P] and there you can map system hardware to channels.
For the actual view of the system, see Jack control panel
Connect > Expand All
Perhaps your system only sees 2 captures? Do you have the right interface selected in JACK setup?
FWIW I probably know less about this than you, but I looked at it just days ago, soo ...

>> Ardour 6.3 is released. This is mostly a maintenance release, but the new Loudness Analysis feature will be very useful to some users. The usual steady drip-drip of bug fixes continues, and thanks to Ayan Shafqat, we now have up to date super-optimized metering code for Linux on both x86(64) and ARM platforms (metering is the most computationally expensive thing that Ardour itself does).
