One is for plural use (have) while the other (has) is for singular use.

Ie

They have done it, not they has done it. "They" here is plural

He has done it, not he have done it. "He" here is singular.

They both go with a participle.

Watch out for the subject.

I have done the excercise
do/does - did - done

Has goes with a singular words, While have to plural words.

She(singular) has gone(participle) home

They(plural) have gone(participle) home

They are many rules.
For two words separated by and, the closest word determines if has or have would be used.

Have cats(plural) and dog been written

Has cat(singular) and dog been written

Dogs and cat has been written

Cat and Dogs have been written

Has / Have can also depict that something is just completed now. Eg: The eggs have boiled, She has gone to the market( if she isn't present/wasn't present when it started to happen, else "she is gone to the market)



While had is the past of both. I had paid him before coming here.

when your subject is a third person singular (he/she/it), you use has.

For all others, first and second person singular (I and you) and
First, second and third people plural (we, you and they), have is the appropriate verb

"when do I suppose to?"

OP, this problem is deeper than knowing when to use has or have.

You may start with the advice I quoted below.
