The best option here may not be in your list - it is very common to describe someone (or something) as being under stress.
If you do need to use one of the 4 options you listed, I believe the most appropriate would be to feel stress, assuming that you are using stress in the context of a human (i.e. not stress on a material or object, such as a bridge). Stress can be defined as a feeling of emotional or mental pressure, therefore feeling fits well.
The most common form is: to be stressed.
In academic or any other type of formal writing.
Unless there is a specific reason for it, use the verb form.
Otherwise, one can feel stress, yes. The other verbs don't work.
