Names

Something with "creag" in it, maybe?

We have a good free online dictionary: https://www.faclair.com/

Pick something and then post both the English version and your attempt, and we'll try to fix it for you so that it will be correct.

Cait' Caite/ bheil

Yes, it's a bit like contractions. In "Càite a bheil", the 2 sounds that I underlined are pronounced the same, so they usually get pulled into one.

Càite bheil is an unusual spelling for it though, Càit' a bheil is the usual way to spell it.

Correct/most natural forms of the conditional tense of 'to be'

No, "bhiodh mi" is never used.

I have never seen the "bhinn" spelling before, but it's entirely possible that people shorten it like that when speaking. I have never paid attention to that though.

[xi] in Gaelic

It's entirely possible that she made a mistake - I am not an expert on the subject at all.

[xi] in Gaelic

It is a valid syllable, but unlike [hi:], I don't remember ever hearing it as a vocable

A Mhórag an dèan thu tighinn

Note that Gaelic doesn't use stress for emphasis, but word order and grammar bits - also, it fits the rhythm.
