How can I look at the effects of gender and age on my model? If I am interested in the effects on both the fit of the measurement model (CFA) and the structural model paths (3 latent variables plus 4 predictors), then is the only option to look at a separate model for males/famales and older/younger?
The variables are on the same scale so you can compare the raw coefficients across groups. You can test their equality using either a chi-square difference test or MODEL TEST.

If i wanna to test the effect of a demo variable (3 levels), as an indicator, in the model with good model fit indices, does it correct to use the following command? in fact, i wanna to see whether there is an effect of demo on M & DV if it happened.
Categorical = demo; estimator = mlr;
model: IV by v1 v2 v3 v4; DV by v5 v6; M by v7 v8;
