1. is this necessary that we should use "had or were" in first condition
If she would have lived, she would be over a hundred now
2. What is the meaning of this sentence below?
If I would go to college wearing a short, nobody would have had the guts to laugh at me.
Thanking in advance

Your first sentence is ungrammatical.
If she had lived (Had she lived) she would be over a hundred by now.
If I were to go to college wearing a short (skirt, tie, pair of trousers .....) nobody would have the guts to laugh at me.

dear, your both sentences are incorrect grammatically.
had she lived, she would have been over hundred or if she had lived, she would have been over hundred
if she lived ,she would be over hundred..

Manzoorelahi, you should not criticise anybody's ungrammatical sentences until you can write grammatically correct sentences yourself.
Has nobody ever told you to begin sentences with a capital letter and end them with the correct punctuation?

I suggest, too, that Manzoorelahi desist from plagiarism!
