They are all scripting languages.  NodeJS is based on Google's javascript implementation.  However, it is less likely to be installed on a hosting server because it requires low level access to the underlying system.  PHP and Python are more likely and Ruby from what I've seen is only supported by a few hosts.

Usefulness depends on need.  Impossible to give a useful answer without knowing what is needed.

I don't know how popular NodeJS is.  NodeJS is used to create web servers, not use them.  It requires access to the file system and services of a machine much more than PHP or Python do.  You can't install it on things like shared hosting because it would allow you to gain access to other people's files.
