There are no syntactic limitations.

> 2.*SoHvaD paq vInob*  and*paq qanob*  are both grammatical. Is there any (canonical) difference between them (e.g. one is more formal, the other coloquial etc.)?

I believe there is no known difference between them. One is not more 
formal than the other.

> 3. Can we use*bID*  before and after a noun and, if it is so, what's the difference?

Others have asked this. I think we don't have a canonical answer, but 
there's a summary of the issue here: http://klingon.wiki/Word/BID

Basically, ask yourself: is the thing X you're talking about identified 
as an X or is it something a little different than an X by being smaller 
or shorter or lesser ("half")? Whatever the thing is is the head noun in 
the noun-noun construction (the last noun).
