Word order with się

I'm confused about the order, mainly because it's different in Slovakia.

Are there some rules I can use to figure out where in sentence should się be used?

I don't know how helpful this will be, as I don't have time to read into the topic, but one longer discussion about 'się' can be found here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16097555

It is rather flexible. It can be used before or after a verb but not at the beginning of the sentence. Also, usually not at the end except short sentences when there is no other option.

What about questions?

And is it different for "wh-"(which have normal answers) and not "wh-" questions (which have yes/no answers)?

No, these rules apply to all kinds of sentences.
