Hi everyone. I`m just a student who start to use the GAZEBO recently. I want to ask about the way to express the softness on object. I have heard there are 4 physics in GAZEBO (ode, bullet, ...), and which can be helpful to express softness? Hope for answering my question, thank you.

gazebo doesn't expose soft body physics functionality from the underlying engines yet. You can maybe try to emulate the behavior you want to some extent by setting soft constraints and surface contact params but underneath the hood it's still doing rigid body physics.
