Have you ever owned most shares of a business?

Buying stocks kinda guarantees you part ownership of the company. It's not a lot, but if you have more shares of a company, the more you own, right? That's how I see it anyway. If I buy enough shares, could I own a certain percentage of the business? Like, could I buy shares to the point where I own more than half of a company?

I can't say I ever have! I think that would be nuts to be a prime holder of shares in a company. I don't know anyone who has done this outside of one person in my family who owns the business so he has 51% no matter what.

Some of the companies I have started I am 100% owner of. 

Now if you are talking about buying into a company I am sure there are plenty of smaller private companies that can use capital and they would sell off large amount of equity for capital and solutions. Look at TV shows like The Profit or Shark Tank.
