1) I think the better question is when to use 'that' after the verb. I don't think 'that' has special properties because the verb is 'hope' or 'wish.'

2) I believe wish and hope can be used interchangeably, it's just different verbs with the same meanings

3) The verb tense varies depend on the context. I would study the verb tenses again in the prep books or look for it on this forum.
