Should Help me, please, put the correct tense. By now I should (study) English for two years. I think, it needs Present Perfect Continious. Is it correct? If I need using "should" with Present Perfect, what must I write? Should+Present Perfect means Simple Past. But if I need Present Perfect?

By now I should have been studying... It is a hypothetical situation.I am not sure because you don't give a full context but that is what I would say after "by now". Also not sure what you mean about past simple, because "should" is a modal verbs,and regular tenses don't apply to them. I hope this is clear.
