Helium doesn't form any kind of chemical bond. Every atom has its specialty, they don't form every type of bond.

In general, it is a valence electron that an atom makes available to form chemical bonds.

An ionic bond will form because the cation (Mg) is a metal and the anion (N) is a nonmetal. The chemical formula for magnesium nitride would be Mg3N2.

the chemical bond that water has is called covalent bond where there are two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom

A hydrogen bond is a type of chemical bond. A hydrogen atom bonds with either a nitrogen, fluorine, or oxygen atom to make a weak bond.

Nonmetal atom create covalent bond

They form a chemical bond, an ionic bond, forming Lithium Fluoride, Li+ F-.

It depends which atoms are bonding because the type of atoms determine the type of bond they form.

A covalent bond due to the fact that they are both non-metals

If by transfer you mean that one atom gains the electrons that another atom loses, it is called an ionic bond.

The alkali metal potassium and the halogenfluorine will form an ionic bond.

Theoretically, in extreme conditions, every atom can form every type of bonds. Generally, atoms tend to bond each other by releasing the most possible energy. The lower the energy of the bond is the more stable.

With only 1 electron in its valence shell, the atom is likely to form an Ionic bond.

Any atom who's protons do not equal the number of electrons it takes to fill all of its electron shells. In short, any atom who is not in group 18 (the noble gasses).

they will bond together with a double covalent bond

Ionic bond, as the difference in electronegativity between calcium and fluorine is over 1.7
