Hi, I have designed a four element MIMO patch antenna systems, and i have used sma connector with wave port to excite the each antenna. Can anyone suggest me how can i terminate other waveports with 50 ohm impedence while other waveports are excited.

You were probably looking at a simulation using a terminal port. My preference is to use a modal port with dimensions that resemble the particular feed line. Look at the on line documentation for more details and information.

You could make a coax cable using cylinders and define the inside dielectric as the wave port surface. Then normalize the waveport to 50 ohms and you should be able to match your sma.

As the above figure shows, a sma connector to a UFL connector.
I need to add some additional wire between it, as shown in the bellowing figure.
So I have to cut off the wires, and find the conductor inside the wire, and then connect the additional wire to the connector.

you will need some sort of connector at the end to connect to network analyzer and that will induce losses. the only way is do TRL calibration to subtract the losses from the system so you will only measure the TL line.

The output of the power detector is a DC signal and uses the RF connector only for convenience. There are effectively no requirements, except for fixing the sma connector correctly.
If you place a cable between the detector and your board, the PCB side may also use a different (probably coaxial) connector.
