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.

Would I be understood anywhere regardless of which one I use?

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

Can't we ask questions using "nuair"?

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