I always a bit in doubt when I see questions with web3js code. I start each question from analyzing version of web3js. There are lots of differences between 0.x and 1.x. It takes time to check it. I think a person who asked a question should be in charge to provide version of web3js

Would it be better to introduce tags for it?

For instance web3js-v0.x and web3js-v1.x

Given that other StackExchange sites with similar version issues do exactly this - have tags for each version - I would say yes.

Create the version tags you describe. Leave the existing and change its wiki to state that it for version-agnostic questions only.

Ideally existing questions would be retagged with the version tag. However, given that there are over 2000 such questions, this wouldn't be worthwhile. Questions should only be retagged in this way if they are being edited for other reasons.

    In the (extended) wiki for web3js it might be good to add something like "it should be for version-agnostic questions only, but many past questions will mean web3js-v0.x"

    All these tag wiki changes have now been made.
