If a second molar tooth has been pulled can it be possible that it will be filled with a new wisdom tooth that is slowly coming in and will it slowly fill the gap?

I had my molar pulled 10 - 15 years ago and my wisdom tooth did come down and fill in the space. It is slightly slanted but I have never had any problems with it. It is possible for a wisdom tooth to eventually erupt into the space but they will generally come in at a slant and create problems with the health of the gums. This slanting causes a large space that is very difficult to keep clean and we usually see advance bone loss happen in this are that can affect the existing 1st molor as well. In today's world the best alternative would be a dental implant to replace the extracted 2nd molar.

Can you remove wisdom teeth affected by caries when you are 35 years old?

Yes, they can be and should be removed. The only reason it's suggested to get them out when you are younger is because you are more likely to recover faster and there is less chance of caries. If you have cavity on a tooth, it should be treated, either by repairing the tooth, or in cases of semi-impacted wisdom teeth, the tooth should be extracted.
