Re: Usage of "Talk around".
Welcome to Using English.
If you talk around something, you don't mention it directly. You don't use more words than are needed; it's not the same as being "wordy."
You talk around something that you feel is embarrassing, that you think someone else might be embarrassed about, or just a topic we don't usually talk about in polite company. It could be anything from menopause to suicide to bowel movements, or your desire to be chosen to head a project but you don't want to ask directly.
Your example doesn't make much sense to me, but it's not an example of talking around something.
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.
