I'm going to install 64-bit OS on Pentium 4 630 (EM)
Is it possible to start instalation from x86 cd and then use ia64 stage1 ?
Where can i get x64 Universal CD ?

The ia64 stages are definitely not suitable for a Pentium 4 630 (EM).
ia64 is for Itanium only, what you are searching for is called amd64 in gentooland. The amd64 term is for historical reasons (AMD was the first firm to offer chips with that ISA and then Intel later offered chips with (nearly) the same ISA and called it EMT64). Nowadays both chip lines are supported (or should be supported) by Gentoo "amd64".
Building an amd64 gentoo with the amd64 stages out of an x86 boot CD will most probably not work an the stages themselves contain 64bit binaries (including the compiler you will use) which are not supported by the standard (32bit) x86 kernel. There should however be the possibility to cross-compile.
But the much easier way should be to use an amd64 boot CD and then to continue with the amd64 stages.
