could vechi be used in place of bătrâna? Is veche ever used with living things?

Is there a way to write this two different ways, like in English? For example, "Is the old woman alive?" is different than "The old woman is alive?" Is it possible to say "Este femeia batrana vie?"

Yes. In fact, all of the following word orders are ok:

  • Femeia bătrână este vie?
  • Este femeia bătrână vie?
  • Este vie femeia bătrână?
