Would anyone like to explain me the meaning of phrase "GO A LONG WAY" and how can we use it in a sentence? And how can we use it as "WILL GO A LONG WAY " "GOES A LONG WAY" "WENT A LONG WAY".

The phrase can have both literal and figurative meanings.
Literally, it means to travel a long distance.

Figuratively, it means to go a significant "distance" towards a desired end:
Apologizing will go a long way towards making things better between you.
