'he could be the one' implies you don't have romantic feelings, but you can see what a good person they are. you want to like them, even though you don't yet. given time you could learn to love them one day.

I'm glad you could use this one instead of that one. それよりこれを使えられてうれしい(場面の推測:「これ」は(たかすぎるとかで)普段使えないけど、今度は使えられてよかったと話し手が述べる)

wouldは将来のことに使えられたら、couldに勝手に代えられる場合もあります。例えば "Would you be able to see me tomorrow" "Could you see me tomorrow" は必ずしも意図に関することではないです。将来は不明なことだから、代えられてもOKです。実はwouldを聞く方が丁寧なのかな。なぜかというと、会えない理由は沢山あるかもしれないけど、相手の意志で断らせてあげたら、もっと優しいからかな(いまやっと考えました、これ、伝わらないかもしれないです)
