M.Untel, would not be used in most cases. M. Untel is as restricted in its usage as would be "Mr so-and-so" or "whatsisname".

comment I need help using “l'impératif” and “bons pronoms” together to create effective sentences
Apart from confusing the verbs vouloir and veiller, which you could have easily checked with an online conjugator, your confusion arises mainly because of the bad wording of the exercise.

added tag, improved formatting, reversed to some of the original mistakes so they could be explained and refered to in the answer.

comment C'est/il/elle est magnifique?
Une vidéo feminine, that rules out using il. In using elle you must make sure it is clear you're referring to the video and not to the girl in the video. Spontaneously magnifique will be thought to apply the girl so using ce would be better. I would not use magnifique for a video (but I would for a girl !). For a video, according to the situation, I'd rather use super, géniale, vraiment très bien, remarquable, extraordinaire.

comment It's 10 years ago that we got married
For the use of il y a & depuis possible duplicate french.stackexchange.com/q/6910/358 And you cannot use both il y a and depuis, it's either one or the other depending on what you mean.
