Hello is it correct to say "The team has been join by William" instead of "William has join the team"?

    Yes, but you need an "ed" on the end of "join". I presume it's just a spelling error on your part. Dec 8 '20 at 15:07

Both of your sentences are incorrect. It should be:

William has joined the team. (active voice)

The team has been joined by William. (passive voice)

You could also choose another tense like:

William joined the team. (active voice)

The team was joined by William. (passive voice)

    Note. @sachista, that the word joined used in these to examples actually represents two different grammatical forms, which are identical for most verbs, but not for "irregular" verbs. For example William spoke to the team, but William has spoken to the team and The team was spoken to by William.
