are they the same meaning got and has/have?
'Have got' and 'have' can have the same meaning of 'possess', but we don't use 'have got' for actions (like eating, washing, etc). 'Got' alone is sometimes used instead of 'have got' (I got a problem), but this is colloquial or regional and the auxiliary verb is missing. In spoken langage, it's often hard to say whether the person is saying the auxiliary or not because it gets so reduced in sound.
