Smile would prefer/rather

Hi teachers ,
I know that we have the construction : WOULD RATHER + SUBJECT+ PAST TENSE :
I would rather he went to meet Mr Brown now.
Can I use WOULD PREFER the same way?i.e.Can I say" I would prefer he went to meet Mr Brown now." instead?

By the way ,I see these sentences on the Internet :

a/They would rather my husband not come with me for a holiday.
Why don't they say' They would rather my husband did not come with me for a holiday.'?

b/The Pentagon said it would prefer that the withdrawal plan and the education benefits not be considered with the war funding.
Why don't they say'it would prefer that the withdrawal plan and the education benefits would not be considered /were not considered with the war funding.'?

b/He would prefer she stop calling him "Pacman"
Why don't they say'He would prefer she stopped calling him "Pacman"?

Thank you in advance
