Answer
Situation 1: i want to climb mount Everest and i imagine something like this -
*what it would like to feel climbing up the mount Everest !

(Is it correct sentence grammatically? It's correct but incomplete, so please get back to me with a complete sentence
What are other options creating sentences  that i can use in this situation? )

Situation 2: I want be rich. And i imagine something like this_
*what it would be like to feel to become a rich person !
(Is it correct sentence grammatically? just as above, it's correct but incomplete
What are other options creating sentences  that i can use in this situation? )

Situation 3: I see a begger in the street and i feel pity and kind to him. In this situation i say something like this-

* He might be be grief stricken.
What grief he might be be going through!
He might be hungry.
He may not have eaten in several days.  
(Are these sentences correct  grammatically? I have corrected the ones that weren't right above

Also it's "beggar", and "I feel pity and kindness towards him"
What are other options creating sentences  that i can use in this situation? )
