Hi guys! Can someone give me a rough idea of how the spanish verbs work in past perfect, present perfect tenses?

(What I mean by, is that if they use ser and tener for auxiliaries such as in german, where they use sein and haben and in french where they use etre and avoir)

They use auxiliary verb "haber" (to have) and the verb in participle. Construction is dentical to English (but uses can change):

He vivido por tres años en Japón = I have lived during three years in Japan.

Habíamos vivido por tres años en Japón = We had lived during three years in Japan.
