if someone had pid in the past && they're fallopian tubes could be black or damage could they still use hsg to unblock them?

NO!!!: Bad idea because if you had pid an hsg could cause a bad recurrence of the pid, u need to see an infertilty sub specialist for evaluation to see if the tubes can be fixed or not, u may have to do in vitro fertilization, but u need a proper work up.
