I'm going to ask a question where I describe my application and write some features I would like from an actuator. My question is about which kind of technology might fit the application - I'm not asking for a specific model that fits my specific needs only.

Are these type of questions tolerated here? Or there's a better SE place to ask them?

It sounds like it would be fine. But by asking on this site, you're presupposing that it will be an electrical actuator. I understand that you want something that can be controlled electronically, but you might get a broader range of possibilities on Engineering.SE.
