I've used in the past sentences of the type
Were hypothesis to be result, then action
Were this question to be answered, I'd be very happy
However, I have no clue as to how to refer to this kind of structure/tense/voice. From a quick research, I think it's a subjunctive voice, and some kind of future tense? And I think the first part is in passive voice?
[Edit] @FumbleFingers has pointed out it's not a future tense, but a conditional, hypothetical one.
I can't seem to find my way through Google, so any help would be appreciated.
[Edit] the purpose of this question is to point a colleague who corrected me from "were" to "where" (both of us are native Spanish speakers) to something for them to have as reference.
