you're looking for Pitch Axis Theory - mind you this is a very detailed and complex explanation if you don't know basic terminology and/or just don't grasp it

Here is a thread with a short explanation which may be a bit easier to understand if you can't keep up with the other one

If a progression uses the chords of a major key but doesn't center on the I chord, you would use a mode. For example: If a progression centers on the ii chord you would use dorian.
