1-How many men do we have to finish this job?
2-How many men do we have in order to finish this job?
In which case:
a-we are going to finish this job (by having them help us, or, indirectly, by 'using' them)
and in which case:
b-the men are going to finish this job?
Grammatically speaking, what is the implied subject of 'to finish the this job'?

I think that we are involved in some way, even if not working directly, so I'd go for a) in both cases.
