Why we use "Zij" instead of "Ze" ??

When you want to emphasise the word, use zij, otherwise ze.

Why is the word order not verb ending the sentence? (Ie: zij fis eten)?

pretty sure that similar to german (and english), dutch uses subj - verb - obj word order unless there's a reason to reposition the verb (like a modal verb)
