He used to live in a hurt and he was having the power to transform the form of the things to other. He would cast a spell on the things and it would transform to any form he wish.

He had a big bowl that had a power to change the colors of the flower to whatever he wish.

This mirror will take you way back to the time when some magical power used to live. They had a great power to make the wish of the people dream come true. now step into the mirror and meet those magical people.

Did I used the would correctly in the above past tense sentences?

Is use to = would if yes where they can be used interchangeably and where not?

Thanks
