    which verb to express this concept?

    Which verb do you use when you have to explain this scene?

    - Someone is in front of a mirror and his breathing turns into something like steam on the mirror...

    Are these possibile? to steam up...to cloud?
    Thanks for your help.

    You could say he was "fogging up" the mirror. When your shower is very hot, this happens. You can do it on purpose by breathing close to the mirror as well.
    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.
