Hi, Me_IV,

@Me_IV posted:

He has lived/has been living since he was born here. - OK.

What about the past?



It is meaningless. You can say, 'He has lived / been living (alone/with his family/here) since he was born'. The meaning here is related to 'until now'.

He had lived/had been living/lived/was living since he was/had been born there.

Which ones are correct?

To use this sentence in the past, you need to use 'the past perfect or the past perfect continuous' in the main clause and the past the simple in the subordinate clause.

He had lived/had been living (with his family / alone / there) since he was born. (until he died, for example).

The meaning here is related to 'until then', i.e. it is connected to a past moment in the past.
