“Already” is usually used with Past Perfect and Present Perfect Tense. However, we can also use “already” with Simple Present, Present Continuous and Simple Past Tense.

Should already be or should be already?

You’re right, there is a tense problem. “Should already have exist” should be “should already have existed.” This is the past progressive (or past continuous) tense combined with a modal verb “should.” The auxiliary “have” cannot be combined with the present tense form of a verb: it always takes a past participle.

Has been or had been?

“Has been” and “have been” are both in the present perfect tense. “Has been” is used in the third-person singular and “have been” is used for first- and second-person singular and all plural uses. … “Had been” is the past perfect tense and is used in all cases, singular and plural.

Are done vs were done?

“Has been done” is a present perfect passive tense, which should be used for an action that happened at an unspecified time in the past. You should not use this tense when the time is specified. Use the simple past passive “was done” instead.

Can already or already can?

“Can” and “already” aren’t mutually exclusive… You can say things like “I can already see you” with no problem. The mistake in your sentence is trying to combine “have” and “can”. You can’t do that – can is a verb form that can’t have its tense changed with other modal forms like “have” or “will”.

Has it already been used?

Both are correct. However, more correctly, the present perfect continuous tense ends in a participle: “He has been practicing already for three hours.” Alternatively, we can say, “He has already been practicing for three hours.” The last usage is the most natural in English.
