Can I ask questions about the "non-canon" Star Wars Universe on this forum?

For Example: "How old was Jacen Solo when he died?"

That question has nothing to do with the movies and Disney has declared it "non-canon".

And how would I format such questions to be clear what I am asking?

    Not only do we happily deal with it, but we also spend endless hours debating what constitutes canon and non-canon. – Valorum May 20 '16 at 9:57

Yes.

Questions about Legends material from the Star Wars universe are on-topic. (Hell, even questions about fan fiction are on-topic here, and material that used to be considered some level or other of canon is a lot higher up the pecking order than that!)

And how would I format such questions to be clear what I am asking?

You can make clear in the text of your question that you're asking about Legends material as opposed to Disney canon, perhaps with a link or citation to the particular work you're referring to or asking about. We also have a tag, whose tag wiki info says:

Use this tag if your question references Legends sources and/or to indicate that answers are permitted to use Legends sources.

    You should probably state that fan-fiction is on-topic for questions, but not for answers to canon or Legends Star Wars questions. – Rogue Jedi May 20 '16 at 12:25
