You need to ovrride the whole page layout, you can't just hide these fields.

Here is an eg for overriding lead page layout

Hi shahid,
Inorder to remove the standard field from view,
Go to the fields which you want to hide and select there link and select the Set Field-Level Security button and uncheck the Visible checkbox for the profiles you do not want to see those particular fields.

Once you click the edit button you will get "Account layout" where you can remove the field depending upon the requirement.

Hi Rahul,
I want to edit the standard field in custom object ? how ?
Hi Shahid,

You can remove them from page layout. Goto page layout of your custom object>drag and remove fields from page layout. You can't remove required fields but you can remove standard fields like owner, created by,last modified by from page layout.
Let me know if having any other issue.
Hi Force shahid,

You can remove the standard fields like  "owner", "created by", "last modified by" from the page layout. If a field is not required at the sobject level, you can remove it from the page layout.  

please Mark it as the best Answer if it resolved the problem.

Best Regards
