Could you please make me understand what is the meaning of "That" in the sentence below?

Is "That" mean same as "used to" in the past " repeating things in the past" ?

Dear teacher,

I am confused about would, the way they have been used in the sentences below.

1. You had no advantage then and struggled like any other person would.

2.Your movie had an interesting subject, and it did well, but perhaps not as masala (spicy) film would do.

3. Use rock salt just as you would table salt.



Thanking you
