    1.How does one use correctly the phrase "I used to," and what does it mean? Is this an idiom or informal English?

    It refers to something you did in the past, but don't do now:

    When I was at school, I used to wear a uniform.

    It's idiomatic, as the meaning is not straightforward, but it's prefectly acceptable in any context.
