    This is the house that she once lived in?

    Is it possible to say this?

    This is the house that she once lived in.
    I don't think that can replace "which" when it's followed by a preposition like "in", then it's also possible to say

    This is the house in that she once lived. => This sounds weird.

    I need someone's help.

    Re: This is the house that she once lived in?

    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;

    This is the house that she once lived in.
    This is the house in which she once lived.

    This is the house in that she once lived. => This sounds weird.
    it does but you could say:
    She once lived in that house.

    hope it helps
    Cheers

    You could also say:
    This is the house where she once lived.

    Yes, that's normal

    It is weird. You can't use "in that" in this context. You must use "in which".
