What's the difference between:

You should go


You should have to go

Can I use one instead of the other?


should means "the correct or best thing to do". have to means "to need to or be forced to; must".

You should go

means that going is the best thing to do.

You should have to go

means that the best thing would be if you were forced to go.

As you can see, the two are not interchangeable.
