I have two questions.

1.He used the building as a place to store all of the important cultural items he [had collected/collected] over the years.

In this sentence above, I know "had collected is grammatically correct. However, I wonder "collected" is grammatically correct.

2. She will [make/have] her voice recorded while reading books aloud.

In this sentence above, I wonder which one is correct. Or if both words are grammatically possible, what's the difference in meaning between two ? Please answer.

Yes. "collected" is also grammatically correct; however, "had collected" is a little more careful and polished.

You need 'have'. 'make' is unnatural to the point of being ungrammatical.

I suppose it is grammatical, but native speakers would think it very strange.

Juniper Kim 13542. She will [make/have] her voice recorded while reading books aloud.

1. She will have her voice recorded while reading books aloud. (This sounds quite strange.)
2. She will make recordings (of her voice) while reading books aloud. (This is better.)
3. She will record herself while she reads books.
