I use www.fao.org/3/a-i4021e.pdf as my main source. Is it a good source?

on what aspect? for aquaponics or plain keeping the fish?
for aquaponics, it will not give much nutrients,
for fish keeping sake, yes, 4 pcs will fit in 55 gal barrel...or even more sd

Does that mean add more fishes, change the fish species, or it depends on the system?

I think anything from the FAO is generally pretty good.

Are you planning on using the barrel standing upright or are you planning on putting it on its side and splitting it in half like I have seen people do?

for fish keeping aspect, yes add more sd... the only set back, you can only see the fish on top
but for aquaponics, change the fish to a more heavy eater...

If I were to do an aquaponic system, it would need to have a viewing window to see the fish. Looking at the fish from the top of an above ground system is boring.

You can get more to produce the same bioload as a heavy eater.
