An infitive verb could be "to write." The present forms of this would be I write, you write, he/she writes, we write, they write, you all write, etc.

Where do you mostly find a infinitive in a sentence?

My conclusion: An infinitive is a preposition (to) (of), plus a verbe in its imperative form; example: (go!). Therefore the two combined: (to + go), gives you the infinitive "to go" and "of going"; ( if you choose to use the verbe "go" as the example). good luck!

Does every definition of a verb have to begin with to in it's explanation?

The reason that "to" appears in the definition of verbs is that normally a verb is defined in its infinitive form, and that form is usually preceded by "to". For example: "Be": "To exist". If the form of the verb that you were describing was not an infinitive, then you would not have to have an infinitive as the definition. For example: "Being": "existing". "Is: "exists". Normally however verbs are defined in the infinitive because it is considered the most "basic" form of the verb.
