The feeling is that "no", but here asking regardless:

 

Will a 64bit application program be installable and runnable on a 32bit computer and operating system(Windows)?

 

I found a link to a 64bit program to download and install, and on the webpage, system requirements say compatable with 64bit and 32bit Windows o.s. including Vista.  When looking at the next page with the download button, only it said  "64-bit".

No, you cannot run a 64bit program on a 32bit OS.

Perhaps you say what's the program's name ? Where is a website?
Why I ask? I know only very few programs, wich works on 64-bit machines only.

I will trust that my feeling and the first response are correct.  But the program is the free edition of Paragon Backup and Recovery.  There is 64-bit version but I cannot find any clear evidence of any such 32-bit version or edition available   (The machine under consideration,  WindowsVista, 32-bit).

You can download v16 for a limited time for free.

 

https://www.paragon-software.com/home/brh/features.html

 

Click the red download button. There is a link under the blue box 64bit version for the 32bit version. Note the instructions on how to obtain the free serial.

 

Edit: You need Windows 7 SP1 or later.

 

Edit: I am pretty sure this is the free version for 32bit that supports versions prior to Windows 7
