If you MUST play something, the implication is that harm will befall your position if you do not. "Should" is probably not as strong.

So 'Should' means it is right and appropriate?

"Should" can be taken as implying it is the best choice in that position.

"To come" - here means something that will happen in the future ... something that will come to pass.

In your example, I think white is saying the s/he intends (expects) to play Bd3 soon

"invade" suggests that the Rook on d1 will move up the d file, to d6 or d7 perhaps, while "attack" suggests the Rook will stay on d1 threatening any Black pawns or pieces that might also be on the file.
