Now since all (most) ship in star wars can fly in space a sub operates most of the time in hyperspace.

I am picturing perhaps a slow x20 x30 hyoerdrive, but with an ability to enter and exit hyperspace much faster than other ships.

It jups in and out of hyperspace, with some form of ability to either lay a senor mine or otherwise get real space live information while in hyperspace.

How could this be statted out, if possible?

Well, if this is the route you want to go, you'll have to throw out a lot of what is "known" about hyperspace at this point. But if you're looking at having the "submarine" interact with ships in realspace, forget about hyperdrive multipliers, as there is no conversion formula from Space Units to Hyperdrive Multipliers, or vice versa.

The bigger obstacle is how to have it do anything useful, as sensing and attacking across the hyperspace boundary are pretty much unheard of (and functionally impossible, per at least one source).

Now, there is at least one example of objects jumping to hyperspace and remaining stationary: the stasis probes monitoring N'zoth in Black Fleet Crisis 3: Tyrant's Test. The problem there is that they were effectively blind and immobile in hyperspace. Another theoretical use is for deep space Holo-Net Relays to use this technique to "hover" in hyperspace, where their hyper-comm signals are much more effective.

These things have been discussed extensively here before.

I was somewhat pressed for time, and couldn’t recall exactly where we discussed it. Looks like I might have some time this weekend, though.

Cool. I remember discussing the hyperspace sub idea and you citing those stationary hyperspace things in the EU, which didn't sit well with my personal concept for hyperspace requiring realspace objects in hyperspace to always be moving fast, so I didn't have much to contribute to that discussion.

Okay, so, it has been discussed in multiple topics, and I couldn't narrow it down to a specific one, so here are a few links...

Hyperspace Pulsemass Generators

Hyperspace

How does Hyperspace work?
