ーなくちゃ and -なきゃ past tenses?

How do i say these in past tense? Like -

友達の誕生日だったから、プレゼントを買わなくちゃった。(Because it was my friends birthday, I had to buy her a present)

Is なくちゃった correct for the past tense for "had to" ?

And what would it be for "なきゃ?”

thanks for any help! :D

Re: How to say "when..."

Thank you!

Is oriru in this case transitive or intransitive? And also, what is the other one in the pair that goes with oriru?

usng a verb to describe something...

I have another problem, hehe. How would you use two verbs in one sentence, but one of them to describe a noun. Like in this sentence, I want to say, "I was hit by the falling rain" 私は降る雨に打たれました。 私は降ること雨に打たれました。 I'm not really sure when it comes to to the Furu bit, i would appreciate any help, thanks.

Ok, so when I was reading through some things on the internet, I noticed a lot of sentences seemed to end with を, and some with は and a couple other particles. How does this make sense?
