Is this formation legal?

Skarsnik in front with 2 goblin bosses and 2 trolls with 4 trolls in the second rank.

EDIT: Don't know why I can't se picture??

1st rank: Troll, skarsnik, troll, 2 goblin bosses (1x2)
2nd rank: Troll, troll, troll, troll

No.

Pg 98 is pretty clear.

The unit has an individual footprint of 40x40. The bosses and skarsnik would all have to be out on the sides. Though I could be off about skarsnik. If he is on a 40x80 then he's good.

He is on a 60x40

Can I use Skarsnik between trolls as long as it's only one rank, not needing to have him on the side?

No. His footprint won't displace whole models, so he must go on the side.

Just a big long rank of 6 trolls and skarsnik on the side!

It'd probably be two ranks of three trolls with skarsnick and the big bosses on the side

If I remember correctly there was some discussion about how many nonfitting models you could have in a unit. Some people were suggesting you could only have one on each side.

It seems to me the two goblin bosses should go side by side and not in ranks.

A horde of orcs (25mm models) with skarsnik on one sied and 5 goblin bosses on the other makes your BSB (if he is one of the 5 bosses) hard to kill. Can opponent charge the 5 bosses only without charging the unit?

skarsnik, 10 orcs, 5 goblin bosses (with BSB)

A long but effective unit. I'm I right on this?

It doesn't make him hard to kill. It makes him easier. Assuming that I charge you. I maximize towards the bosses. And allocate attacks on him and the rest of those bosses. Netting instant VP's and minimizing attacks back from the horde of orcs.
