Here's a couple of ways...

half=ImportString["1  0  0  0
2  3  0  0
4  9  5  0
2  2  3  4","Table"];

half+half\[Transpose]-DiagonalMatrix[Diagonal[half]]
(1	2	4	2
 2	3	9	2
 4	9	5	3
 2	2	3	4)

In[36]:= Array[half[[Sequence@@Sort[{#1,#2},Greater]]]&,{1,1}
Length[half]]
(1	2	4	2
 2	3	9	2
 4	9	5	3
 2	2	3	4)
