In brief: Certainly

Yes. As long as the ulcer is covered and properly dressed, jeans can be worn.
If you aren't already being seen by a wound clinic it is probably a good idea to do so.

In brief: Yes

As long as clothing is not too restricting, there is no reason why one should not wear jeans, even if they have a leg wound.
