Is it OK to list your resume experiences out of chronological order and instead relevance to the position you’re applying to?

Put a "relevant experience" section with specific projects/activities called out up front. Then put a chronological list of companies you've worked for and the role info there.

No - if there’s stuff you’ve completed that isn’t relevant then just leave it off the resume or don’t expand on it and focus on the applicable experiences/skills.

Look up functional resume. You can do either skills based or chronological resume, and in some cases functional is better.
