Janine talks as if she knew everything.
Janine talks as if she knows everything.

Use the past tense after the phrase as if or as though. He talks as if he knew everything, means He talks as he would talk if he knew everything.

Use the subjective were with the verb to be after as if: He acts as if he were a rich man.

Next
I would wish to know more English.
I wish I knew more English.

Use the present tense of wish to express a present meaning, followed by a that clause containing a past tense.

Next
Look! Two boys are fighting.
Look! Two boys fight.

We also use the present continuous for the future when something is pre-arranged or expected with some certainty: Lorna is arriving tomorrow at six. Tom and I are eating out tonight

Next
You ought to have come yesterday.
You ought to come yesterday.
Also possible:
You should have come yesterday.

Don't use must and ought to as past tenses. To express a past duty (which wasn't done) use the perfect infinitive without to after ought to or should, or expressions such as had to, was obliged to.

In indirect speech use must and ought to as past tenses: He said he must do it.

Next
I'll see you when I come back
I'll see you when I shall come back.

If the verb in the main clause is in the future, the verb in the time clause must be in the present tense
