Can a foreigner with a valid US visa marry a permanent resident and file a petition?

Yes, the spouse would be able to file a petition (I-130). However, since the spouse is only a permanent resident, a spouse visa would not be available for some 3-4 years. Therefore, the foreigner would HAVE to return to their native country and wait for the spouse visa to become available. The foreigner can only stay in the US if he/she is under any other visa that would allow lawful stay (for example an F-1 student visa or H-1B visa, but NOT a B-1/B-2 visa)

If person got deported from US can his wife and kids stay legally in US or not?

It depends on the exact circumstances and the residency status of the various people involved. For example, if a US citizen marries a foreigner, they don't automatically lose their US citizenship. If that foreigner is later deported, the citizen is legally entitled to remain in the US. However, if the wife and kids are not US citizens but entered as dependents of a permanent resident who was later deported, the answer would be different (again: depending on exactly what their residency status is).
