    I would not accept 1 and 3 anywhere. You will hear the second with some regularity.

    But don't they all mean the same thing?

    I don't use or recommend the use of "imma have to".

    1 and 3 remind me of the ludicrous fake dialect/accent used by Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars, Episode I. Don't use it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
