    होता - happens. होना - happening. Not really connected though. They can be used in any tense. They can be used with multiple meanings as well. Like being *there* for someone etc.

    हुए - it roughly translates to became.

    रहा - it doesn't mean anything much along. kya kar raha hain (means what are you doing). generally used between a verb and a "hain".
