I wonder if questions asking about proper argumentation are on topic? I.e., questions concerning fallacies and argument construction or debunking.

What I mean is that Q&A here are mostly formatted as "claim -> support of a claim / debunking of a claim". Can questions like "which fallacy does this statement contain?" and similar be asked here?

No, they would not be on topic.

The site is about "examining the evidence behind claims" and not "examining claims". Typically if you are looking for a logic-based answer or examination the best site could be Philosophy.
