My Guess:

Jon Skeet

They say he is more than a hero! (preamble only)

Don't believe, he can divide by zero!

See Jon Skeet Facts

He lives in the land of Big Ben

He lives in the UK.

If you are reading this, then you are near his den!

https://stackoverflow.com/

Most reputed among us all,

863k Rep on SO.

Yet, as it is, his name is small!

Jon is pretty short, as is Skeet

Now it's a verb, something only he can do

With help from OP: To be skeeted
Original Answer: See Definition 3 -- But there might be "Jon Skeet-ing" in use on S.O. I can't find a reference though.

Tell me his name. Can you?

Yes, I can.

    $\begingroup$ "Skeet" as a verb also has a less-savory meaning (check Urban Dictionary (while not at work)). $\endgroup$ Commented May 3, 2016 at 17:27
