2. She stood on her hands at the concert.
Do we have to use 'hand' or 'hands'? Are both Okay? Which one is commonly used?

I'm not sure what you mean by this. I know of acrobats who stand on their hands in circus or other performances, but I don't know the expression "stand on her hands" at a concert.
1. After singing a song, she stood on her hand. [She used one hand here.]
2. After singing a song, she stood on her hands. [She used two hand here.]
3. He stood on his hand for a moment.
[He used one hand here.]
4. He stood on his hands for a moment.
[He used both hands here.]
Are the explanations right?

Here's the dictionary meaning of the phrase:
So I'm trying to come up with possibilities for you.
After singing a song, she held her hands up high.
At the end of the concert, she applauded with her hands held high.
There's also this expression -- to sit on his hands:
I don't think that's what you're after, though.
