Ok, so below are a few spells and skills for several heroes i came up with; the Lyan Champion (Lion in case u can't say it), and the Phoenix Apotacary.

Healing Aura

Hmmm... Unholy Aura gives you an enhanced life regeneration option to edit, but I'm not sure about giving enhanced HP to ordinary units. I would normally suggest changing whatever you want with periodic triggers, activating an invisible ability, but I can't recall any ability or trigger that edits the max HP of a non-hero unit. Upgrades do that sometimes, but you can't undo upgrades, so they'd be useless for this.

Unit transformations offer an option of bonus HP at times, but they're a pain to use with triggers, and wouldn't feel natural if you did, plus you'd have to create two of every unit.

The HP bonus is definitely the difficult part here, mainly because blizzard doesn't seem to have coded the option in.

Call of the Basilisk

Ah, an easy one. No triggers needed for this, just edit the Misha summon ability, and create custom units for each level of the Basilisk you want to summon, complete with whatever custom abilities you want it to have when it's summoned. Use Misha as a guide here, to learn more about how summon units work in the process.

The only thing that might be tricky is the "chance to return HP." If you mean that it restores its own health when it strikes the enemy sometimes, you can set up a trigger to do this. If you mean a kind of randomly-activated thorns aura thing, then this can be done by trigger too. The same if you want him to give the hero HP when he attacks. Let me know which of these effects you want, and I can walk you through the trigger-making.

Xavier's Righteous Heart

Randomly activating a targeted spell? It sounds possible. The tricky part would be hiding the spell itself, so that the hero can't use it manually. If you'd like, I can try this myself, and see if it works...
