Is there any configuration axample?

There is no separate document for 4500 switches. HSRP is an IOS feature and the configuration is the same on all IOS platforms.

I've a question regarding logical Layer3 interface and a physical L3 interface.

From the cat configuration guide is not clear , to me , whether do I need to configure a Physical L3 interface to setup HSRP or configuring a logical L3 ( interface VLAN ) might be sufficient as well

For HSRP it is not necessary that interface need to be Physical.

HSRP can be configured between VLAN interfaces also.

2 VLAN interfaces can be present in two deferent L3 route processors in Single box (redudancy within a BOX, example 6500 with 2 MSFC cards) or 2 defferent VLAN/Physical interfaces in two different L3 boxes.
