    A learner

    I would have to go.
    ?
    I'd say I have to go

    I would have to do this.
    ?
    I'd say I have to do this.



    To have done is possible. (The perfect infinitive)

    To have been doing as well. (The perfect infinitive continuous)

    I haven't got your the second question.

    Re: structure problem

    Certainly. 'If I won the lottery I would have to buy a new house.'

    What is the difference between the structures 'not only....but also' and 'not only....but'?
    'Also' can often be omitted and replaced with a similar word or phrase.

    'He is not only rich, but good-looking as well.'
