1- Salatul-Hajah is considered Mustahab in Islam. According to the Hadith of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam mentioned by Imam Nawawi (R.A) in Kitabul Azkar, it is stated that the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam said" Whoever has a need towards Allah or towards anyone from mankind then he should make Wudhu in a good manner and then offer two Rak'ah of Nafl then praise Allah and send Salat upon the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam then say: لا اله الا الله الحليم الكريم سبحان الله رب العرش العظيم الحمد لله رب العالمين اللهم إنى أسألك موجبات رحمتك وعزائم مغفرتك والغنيمة من كل بر والسلامة من كل إثم لا تدع لى ذنبا إلا غفرته ولا هما إلا فرجته ولا حاجة هى لك رضا إلا قضيتها يا أرحم الراحمين
2- Salat-ul Taubah is also considered Mustahab and it is also offered in the same way as other Nafl prayers are offered.
There is no particular Duaa for this Nafl. 
It is permissible to offer this Nafl prayer at any time except sunrise, sunset, mid-day, after Fajr prayer and after Asr prayer.
And Allah knows best.
