what would happen if somehow we could create water clouds on Mars? How the planet would respond?

    It might get wet.

    Beyond that... the water (in the cloud or on the ground) would eventually be dissociated and:

    1) hydrogen would float off in space.

    2) oxygen would combine with whatever is left to oxidize (the planet's surface is red because of the rust = iron that got oxidized).

    On Earth, clouds are kept in the air because of ascending currents (air "bubbles" kept aloft because they are warmer than the surrounding still air). On Mars, nothing would keep the cloud up. Clouds are heavy; a good cumulonimbus (a storm cloud) carries several hundred tonnes of water. Such a cloud in the martian atmosphere would quickly crash to the ground.

    Liquid water can't exist on Mars. The pressure isn't high enough. The water would fall as snow.

    Mars does have water clouds. They're very thin and wispy cirrus, so unlike what you're probably suggesting, but there is some water in the martian atmosphere. The issue for planetary scientists is, is there water still held in underground aquifers and sometimes flowing on the surface?

    And as a sidelight, this link shows why Brexit might not be so bad after all . . .

    The water would evaporate and float off into space. The planet wouldn't do anything to respond.
