Model: Archer C7  
Hardware Version: V5
Firmware Version: 1.2.0 Build 20211210 rel.51212(5553)

can I use archer c7 USB for a USB modem? and can get 2g/3g/4g modem support from it? if official support is not available, anyone tries custom firmware for this type of feature.

The USB port on the Archer C7 is used for file and media sharing, it doesn't support working with a 3G/4G USB modem to share the internet. You may check the User Guide about USB sharing to get more details:

  @Kevin_Z Thank's! But the exact answer is "Archer C7 no longer supports USB modem". The Archer C7 (AC1750) supported USB modems until TPLink deleted this capatibility with a firmware update in 2017. No warning. [Edit: All Archer C7 before V3 was able to connect an USB modem like E3372S (this page is still showing it). So if you have an old Archer C7 V1 or V2 with firmware update blocked, it can support it (see documentation here).]
