Condition task timing


I need to create a workflow for the case.

1) There is task with a few subtasks

2) The subtask has one of some tags. For instance, must, test

3) The task has an option as select (maybe as parameter of task): option 1, option 2

4) If I choose option 1, the timing of task will be included only subtask with tag "must". If I choose option 2, the timing of task will be included subtask with tag "must" and "test". It has to influence on Burndown-diagramm, due date task and common estimation.

Can I make it through workflow?

Shortly, yes, you should be able to do it via a workflow. 

You can use the links property in the issue entity to link tasks-subtasks in the workflow. The issue entity also has the tag property that you can use to check for the tags. By options, I guess you mean fields. You can see the example of how you can manage subtask's fields by changing the parent issue. Your workflow will, of course, be different, but it's a great start to understand how it works in general. The burndown-diagram, due date task, and estimations are all based on the fields' value, so manipulating the fields' values will affect them.
