- For Teachers
"He's a rough one when he gets whiskeyed up".
Does it mean I could use "whiskey" as a verb to mean being drunk?

I have heard people say "when he's beered up" or "when he's vodka-ed up" meaning "When he is drunk on beer" or "When he is drunk on vodka". It's certainly colloquial and I wouldn't recommend using it.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
I'd say "when he's liquored up" is not uncommon, but that doesn't make it a transitive verb so that you could "liquor" someone.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
It's possible, colloquial and context dependent.
