I need to scale my drawing to 1/4" scale in paper space, however, I don't see this; do I need to change the setting or something?

Also when I'm in paper space and click on the bottom right icon of scale ex 1:50 then 1:100 it does not scale or do anything. Is there a setting where I can make the drawing change according to the scale I select?

do you create a viewport in paper space or draw objects?

OK, select a viewport (don't make it active) and change its scale in Inspector.

Scale in Inspector is that the icon to the bottom right of the page? When I select different scales when the viewport isn't active the drawing doesn't change scale

yes, you can send your files to support@nanocad.com and explain in detail what do you need.
I also advice you to read User Guide, it has full information about scales.

I personally prefer to keep the "inspector" dialogue box open at all times. The inspector allows you to quickly view and edit object properties such as layer, linetype etc. It has three main sections: General, Geometry and Misc.

Anyhow...with the inspector dialogue box open simply select the viewport in paperspace - now in the inspector dialogue box under the Misc section there is a reading titled "standard scale" mouse click in that section and a dropdown will appear of all the standard scales loaded in NanoCAD simply select 1/4" = 1' and your viewport will scale accordingly.
