"I would rather ... " "I had better ... " Those are the combinations to use.

These are all fine, yes. You can either use the base verb or the infinitive, although the infinitive form is a bit wordy. Most people don't use it in this expression.

Engish
6, 7, and 8 are very unconventional! Only 6 is one that might be used. 1-3 are all correct and refer to the past, yes. 4 and 5 have more of the sense of a present perfect (happened and still happening). These are pretty much interchangeable.

English
Both sentences are correct.

English
Technically, yes, the verb tenses are correct. You could also use "didn't like" if you wanted.

Both 2 and 3 are correct, but with slightly different meanings. 2 seems to be asking about how she felt in the past (which may or may not apply to the present). 3 is asking how she feels about swimming now -- at this time in her life.

All are grammatically correct, but 2 and 3 don't mean the same thing as 1. Sentences 2 and 3 would be used VERY rarely because people usually grow plants that have multiple flowers on them.

2-2 is not correct. Grammatically, it's OK, but it doesn't make good sense. And yes, you're last sentence is right. Unless you go to a flower shop and buy only one gardenia or one orchid or one flower of any kind, you should use the plural form.
