2. so, the answer would just be 1/6? or should it be 1/6 x
1/6= 1/36 since 2nd throw is 1/6 and fist is 1/6 too?

3. we already know that the 1st roll is a 4. So, its odds of being a 4 are 1

1 * 1/6 = 1/6

The odds of rolling a 4 and a 6 are indeed 1/6 * 1/6, but the 4 is not in question. You have a 4 on the table already.
