    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”.
