    I think it depends on the meaning of the sentence...

    We have to when the situation means you must do something works logically, as you have to comply if you must do something (have is a synonym for must in this sentence)

    We use "have to" when the situation means you must do something also works, as we use the words "have to" in speech to represent that we must do something (i.e. I must do my homework, I have to do my homework).

    So the word "use" depends on the context that the sentence is from.

    The way you've phrased this is pretty confusing. However your sentence will be clearer if you quote 'have to' e.g.

    We use "have to" when the situation means you must do something.
