Usted ________ el dinero en euros. You would be paid in euros.HINT: Conjugate "cobrar" in El Condicional Simple
This appears to be a passive construction in English. It makes me want to translate tú serías cobrado el dinero en euros.
As written, doesn't the sentence in English mean "You would pay in Euros?"
In the example:
"Los que hayan reservado con antelación pueden ir a esa ventanilla"
why is it 'hayan' and not 'han'?
From your example, Spaniards translate "corner table" as "mesa de la esquina". Would it be more accurate to say "mesa del rincón" since it is bound to be an inside corner?

For example: We were in Brazil with friends could easily also use estabamos, if it were the setting for when something happened:
Estábamos en Brasil con amigos cuando ella murió
La semana pasada, estuvimos en Brasil con amigos
First, my dictionary has ser/estar(Spain) viudo, but I think it's even more complicated than a dialect issue. Here's a relevant discussion: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/to-be-a-widow.596749/
Note that the discussion extends to several other relationship-like words such as soltero (but like viudo, these words are to my mind not relationship words, but rather civil/personal status words, which is why I think ser is often correct with them).
The question is
Será mejor que ________ sin apostar dinero.
It's better to play without gambling money.

Si viniérais, os ________ una paella riquísima. If you guys came, we would make a delicious paella for you.HINT: Using the "nosotros" form, conjugate "hacer" in El Condicional Simple
Because the first clause is in the past, wouldn't the second be in the contitional perfect?
Si viniérais, os habríamos hecho una paella?
