When would I use " Ca huair" over "Cen uair"?

Really, it's dialectal. The first, I believe, is more prevalent in Ulster Irish, the second in Connacht, and Cathain in Munster.

Whenever you like! They are interchangeable. "Cathain" is another acceptable translation.

Can't we ask questions using "nuair"?

https://www.duolingo.com/galaxyrocker

Nuair a is only a conjugation, and requires a relative clause (as evidenced by the a)
