We can use wish + infinitive to mean want. In this sense, wish is very formal. Note that progressive forms are not used.

Some examples:
I wish to see the marketing officer please. (You don't say - I'm wishing to see...)

A possible structure could be an object + infinitive.
For example:
We do not wish our faces to appear in the video.

Without a following infinitive, Wish + direct object is not normal.
For example:
I want/would like an appointment with the marketing officer. (You don't say - I wish an appointment with the marketing officer.)

In some fixed expressions of good wished, wish is used with two objects.

Some examples:
I wish you a Happy Birthday.
We all wish you a safe travel.
Here's wishing you all the best in your married life.

With a that-clause, we can also use wish that can be dropped in an informal style. Wish does not mean "want" - it expresses regret that things are not different, and refers to situations that are unreal, impossible or unlikely, in this case. Tenses are similar to those used with if.

Check below:
I wish (that) I was taller.
Don't you wish (that) you could be the winner.
Everyone wish (that) love would reign the whole world.

We do not generally use wish + that-clause for wishes about things that seem possible in the future. Often, we use hope in this sense.
Some examples:
I hope you get well soon. (You don't say - I wish you get well soon.)
I hope you get the highest grade. (You don't say - I wish you get the highest grade.)
