Check the -pattern()- suboption which can be attached to the statistics
in the -cells()- option. In your case, type

 . estout signs m1 m2 m3 m4, cells("b p(fmt(%9.3f) pattern(0))") ... 

to suppress the p-values for the first model (note that -pattern(0)- is 
interpreted as -pattern(0 1 1 1 1)- here). (Furtheremore, the
suboption may also solve the problems you had with solution 1.)

The crux is that the fmt also affects the display of the placeholder 
numbers for the signs. Thus, if you specify, say, -b(fmt(%9.3f))- you'd
have to type -substitute(-999.000 - 999.000 +).
