Actually, you can place the wildcards * or ? anywhere, it doesn’t matter.  When placing it at the start it just means the entire term index will have to be searched to determine if the term exists.  A common trick veteran Lucene/Solr users will use is to index all terms both forward and backwards, that way you can turn a postfix query (e.g. *ly) into a prefix query (e.g. yl*) [1].

Yes, it absolutely will.  As Sean said, Yokozuna uses Solr and therefore gives all the same functionality so long as that query type is supported by Solr’s distributed search (and the most important stuff is [2]).  Yokozuna uses Solr 4.7.0, the Solr Reference Guide is a great place to learn more about Solr [3].
