Could you please say me which one is correct? We used to have alot of fun We would have alot of fun?

As we don't use stative verbs with would for past habits

I can't recognize if have alot of fun is stative or action....

    "We used to" ALWAYS implies, "but not any more".

    "We would" merely implies a habitual action in the past, but there is no indication that you don't do whatever it is any more.

    We used to have a lot of fun - fine

    (When we were young) we would have a lot of fun - fine but incomplete

    We used to have a lot of fun.

    In saying, "used to", you are giving a more specific time, as in the past. If you say we "would" have a lot of fun, this is too general and does not really describe when; it sounds like something is missing from the second sentence.
