Hello.
Is there way to reprogramm asicminer for my own task.
For example calculate hashes sha256 but not for mining?

Doubtfull, but it might be possible in theory.

 There are other hardware solutions for other uses of SHA256 out there, though.

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Bitcoin mining ASICs are ASICs. They are not reprogrammable in any way shape or form, period. And no there is absolutely no other use whatsoever in the universe for their mining circuitry.

Developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
