Q: What does "She would live in London."
"She used to live in London."
"she had lived in London." mean?
A: "She used to live in London." and "She had lived in London." (This phrasing is a bit awkward), are both forms of past tense speech implying the subject, she, lived in London at one point but no longer does. "She would live in London." is also a bit ambiguously phrased but implies her desire to live in London. Typically we would say, "She wants to live London." to Express her desire, "She will live in London." (future tense) to indicate she absolutely will be doing as such, and "She lived in London." (past tense) indicating her history of having once already lived there.
Q: What does London is a city I've visited where I like very much mean?
A: I just read what @SCDP wrote. His English is poor.

"It's strange to use 'where' instead of 'that' or 'which'. I think 'where' is the way you said that a couple of hundred years ago. Is the person who said this a time traveller?"

He's saying three things.
1) "It's strange to use 'where' instead of 'that' or 'which'." He's saying "which" doesn't sound natural.
2) "I think 'where' is the way you said that a couple of hundred years ago." He's saying he THINKS (his opinion) that "where" would have been used 200 years ago. (He's wrong. "Where" would not have been used.)
3) "Is the person who said this a time traveller?" Here he's just being a smart ass. It's meant to be a joke.
Q: What does I can only take so much of London. mean?
A: @Yuta34573876 Ahhhh okay... It basically means that he/she likes London, but he/she has a figurative "limit" to how much time she can spend in London without longer longer liking it. Hence, there is ONLY so much of the London that she can take at a given time. This is confusing, but I hope it helps!
