I have a 2009 VW Crafter loon wheelbase mini bus with gearbox problems. I believe it has an 'HQT' model box. It revs at 3,000RPM at 62 MPH. Is there a higher ratio gearbox that can be fitted.

check around gear box repair shops to see if there is a replacement box that has an overdrive gear (5th)
if it is an automatic , the problem may be that overdrive is not coming in and that will drop the rpm 250 rpm and increase the speed up to the 75 mph mark
there is nothing wrong in the box as the rpm and the speed are about right in relation to the diff ratio(not mentioned )
3200 rpm with a overdrive manual runs around 74 mph or 120 km/hr
another method is to put a diff in with a taller ratio
example --current 4.1 back to 3.2

Have the car scanned by a transmission shop for transmission related fault codes (not all generic scanners will read trans codes) you may have a bad solonoid in the trans valve body?

If the vehicle exceeds 6 mph (10 km/h) in the forward direction, and Reverse (R) gear is selected, the EAT ECU switches on the low clutch timing solenoid valve in the valve block, which drains the fluid from the reverse clutch.
This function prevents the gearbox from engaging reverse gear when the vehicle is moving in a forward direction, so preventing damage to the gearbox We Are Here To Help !Donald Deane MCSE,ASE,CPO

When put into reverse and gas is pressed car goes nowhere but revs up when car is put in drive and revs to 4000 RPM it just inches forward. Any idea why?

If it's an automatic, is there fluid in the transmission? If the fluid is ok, the transmission is bad. If it's a straight stick, the clutch is bad.

When I am up to 65mph on freeway.the gear wont shift if I keep going up to 80 on the automatic 4 bang tran.IT goes upto 4000 rpm,I dont know if I should keep accelerating because it seems like it should...

well, unfortunately you have found the limits of your pickup, my friend. I believe the only automatic transmissioin that was available on your vehicle was a 4 speed. Now, at 65 mph it should be cruising around 1800-2000rpm or so.
you have got a pickup, not a ferrari unfortunately, and to save on cost and to ensure strength of the gearbox chev decided NOT to put an overdrive in this transmission (this would mean a 5th gear). This saves you money and ensures when you are carrying that extra load in the back, then you are not stressing the internals of the gearbox.

I hope this puts your mind at ease.
