It sounds like the home button may either be stuck due to debris, or just need to be outright replaced. The Sleep/Wake button definitely sounds like it needs to be replaced. The links above are to the proper iFixIt Guides for the iPhone 4.

Get the assistive touch tool. It allows you to control volume, turn off the iPad and use the home button function.
