1) was wondering is it always the word "have" is accompanied by past participle verbs?
e.g I have taken - the verb taken as opposed to take , I have seen him - as opposed to I have see him

2) I am concerned with the use of word "already". Can we have something like
I already <verb> i.e  I already see this movie ? as opposed to I already seen this movie.

Can we say that already = have?

Already is an adverb
So "I already saw the movie" is fine
as is "I have already seen the movie"
The implication of the adverb is that the event described is in the past.
