in Prepar3d I can set under "Settings - Failures" - Controls a failure for Left Flap and/or Right flap.

Can I find out via FSUIPC that one of thoses flags has been set?

I don't think so. There are a lot of settings which can't be read programmatically. 

Looking through the Sim Vars I can read from SimConnect, the only one applicable to flap failure is "FLAP DAMAGE BY SPEED" which I don't read at present. That probably isn't what you want, and there's no separate Left/Right variants. 

In any case many airliners have inboard and outboard flaps, and of course leading edge ones. Not sure what the flap fail options actually fail.

I suppose you could change the flap setting by one notch and see if the flap readbacks change, returning the flaps after, but that would have a noticeable affect of flight, i would have thought.
