I often have trouble knowing when to use have or has in sentences and when speaking. What is the rule for using has or have. When is it appropriate to use have and when is it appropriate to use has?

The verb must agree with the number doing the action, in this case, plural (all).
I was reading an article on yahoo and came across a sentence that didn't seem right. Is that the correct usage of has? Or should " have " been used?

On the last sentence above; should it be: "Should have had been used? Or would it be more acceptable to just say. Have should of been used?"

"The area, the ship was taken in, is not where the focus of our ships has been," Christensen told The Associated Press by phone from the 5th Fleet's Mideast headquarters in Bahrain.

The verb has is correct OK. The subject is singular - "the focus". The punctuation is not good, though.
The area (that) the ship was taken in is not where the focus of our ships has been,

Hi Anon

Use 'question' because you are referring to one single question.
Anonymouslast few years has been great
or
last few years have been great
If you intend that as a complete sentence, then you need to add a word such as 'The' to the beginning (and a period at the end, of course). The subject (years) is plural, so 'have' would be the usual choice:

The last few years have been great.
