Using a verb in the to form in a sentence

Using a verb in the to form in a sentence


So I am wondering, I'm trying to figure out how to say,

"I have to be"

and I think the translation would be

"tuve a ser"

but I'm not entirely sure.

I also have another question related to vocabulary and grammar.

En todo caso, no es mal de que muchas personas...

I'm trying to say: In any case, it is not bad that many people...

That is how I thought to translate it but I'm not sure if it is right, especially the "it is no bad that" part.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
