Not here,Wen. Have here means experience. But Have = have got = possess.

I have a headache.-- OK
I've got a headache.-- OK

but:

I have breakfast at 7:00 -- OK
(X) I've got breakfast at 7:00 -- NG

The verbs need not be the same tense; each tense refers to the time of that action: 'Can you remember (now) the last time you had such an exciting time (in the past)?'

In practical English, these 3 are usually interchangeable, but

"i have to go"-- It it is my decision that it is necessary or required
"i must go"-- Someone else has commanded me
"i need to go".-- It is necessary

"i got to go" -- Bad grammar.

"I should go" -- It is a good idea to go; it is my responsibility to go.
"I must go" -- as above in my previous post.

Hi

It's my first time here and I like it very much!

One question though, What's the difference between had and have, can and could, will and would? And when do we use those words in a sentence? Please help! Thank you so much!

Welcome to the forums!
There is a very useful search function at the top of this webpage.
If you type the words
had have
into the Google search box at the top of this page, then click on the 'Forum search' button (not the Google search button), then you will see a list of threads where this topic has already been discussed.
They should help you.

You can then repeat the search twice more using the words can could' and 'will would' instead of 'had have'.
