"Fa", is it supposed to be placed ONLY at the end? "Soltanto fa settant'anni" not valid?

I suspect "fa" would be interpreted as the present tense of "fare," to make or to do. So "soltanto fa settant'anni" would translate something like, "he only does fifty years."

What is the difference between solo and soltanto?

I think they're interchangable in this instance. I'm basing that off this link:

Why are half the answers "settant'anni" and the other half "settanta anni"?
