I am trying to automatically remove a number from a range of cells, if it
appears in a different range.

I am creating a spreadsheet where once a number appears in B4:G11 4 times,
changes color to that part.

Then I want to manually enter that number somewhere into J4:N21. once
into J4:N21, i want that number to erase from B4:G11.

ideally at that point i would also like all remaining numbers in B4:G11 to
shift up, leaving no empty cells above cells with values in them (keeping
in the order entered within columns).

Only a small set of features adds data to your spreadsheet and nothing in
Calc will ever remove any data automatically. You have to do that by hand or
by means of a macro program.
It seems to be another inventory task which should be done in a database
program of your choice. Later you may connect your database to this office
suite (this is what the Base component does) and use Calc or Writer as
"output medium" for pretty printing and further calculations.

I actually think it's possible with cell functions only, but I think
it would be quite complicated. Too complicated for me, anyway.

I did something else that I also thought was impossible first, but I
solved it eventually. It was not easy (for me) though… My task was to
create a list of things that is sorted automatically. The formulas
were quite long and hard to read…

Kind regards
