In Serbian, there is a nice way to say this and would love to find a way to do the same in English.

Basically, I would like to make two statements in one sentence, second (why) related to answer on the first (is). Still, I don't want to suggest that subject is but to show knowledge of high possibility that it exists.

On the bonus side, is my title grammatically correct? Does question mark comes after dot and double-quote? What is the right order?

Can I write something like this: "I found an answer on is and why is it important to do that."?

Punctuation is key! It is the difference between "Let's eat, grandma!" and "Let's eat grandma!" Please use punctuation! You may be saving lives!

Using the proper punctuation here I think makes the meaning clear:

I found an answer on is, and why is it important to do that.

Though better written, you would probably write:

I found an answer on if, and why it is important to do that.
