Can the height grow after the age of 25 with excercise , stretching, yoga and diet? And also will losing weight make spine slightly taller?

In brief: Sorry, no

Only think that can lengthen your spine and keep you as tall as you can be, consider yoga.
Yoga has been shown to lengthen the spine. And it has also been said, you are as old as your spine is flexible.

In brief: height

Generally speaking, there isn't anything you can do to make yourself taller (unless you have corrective spine surgery).
Basically, over time, we gradually get shorter and shorter.

Liquid content of discs in between vertebrae decreases with time, the spine curves forward from poor posture and we shrink. When President George Washington died, they put him on ice, to give time for those prominent figures far away to come and give their condolences. He grew 1.5 inches in the process.http://www.doctorzebra.com/prez/g01.htm
