What is the different between chiede and fa una domanda? Are they having the same meaning but being used differently?

The meaning it's almost the same but the use sometimes is different.

When you ask something to someone it's the same:
- Posso chiederti una cosa?
- Posso farti una domanda?
(may I ask you something?)

Genrally "fare una domanda" is a little more formal

There are some diffences in official documents. You can "fare domanda" to get answers and "chiedere" to get something, but I don't know if there are any specific rules. In some cases sound better :)

Have you any sample sentence in particular?
