    in Egyptian Arabic,we use لازم more than ضروري,so if you would like to say "I must" it's better to use لازم
    ex:
    أنا لازم اروح المدرسة
    I must go to school

    necessary=ضروري
    like when you say in English "that's necessary"=ده ضروري

    the difference between ممكن and يمكن:

    ممكن=possible/can I...?/might.it's used in many situations,like:requesting permission,allowing (someone to do something),and to say that something will happen but you aren't sure.

    ex:
    ممكن اروح هناك؟
    can I go there ?

    answer:ممكن
    yes,you can

    هو ممكن ينجح في الامتحان
    he might pass the test

    يمكن also used when you are not sure
    يمكن أحضر الحفلة
    (I) may attend the party.

    I hope it's easy:)

    ================================================
    All you talking about is Egyptian Arabic dialect , i suggest u learn standard Arabic at first.
    I got to go = I must go = ( يجب ان اذهب) > (Egyptian Arabic)> (انا لازم امشي)
    يجب = must . > (Egyptian Arabic)>(لازم)
    ضروري = necessary
    Is it right انا ضروري امشي >>> Yes it's right (Egyptian Arabic)
    What is difference between ممكن and يمكن ?
    ممكن = Possible > هل هذا ممكن = Is this possible.
    يمكن = Can >يمكن ان تذهب انت الأن = You can go now
    Hope that help you.
    & sorry for my bad English

    لازم = ضروري = have to OR must
    but in Egypt we use لازم More .
    and when you say i have to go (and its my duty ) you better say لازم also
    ------------
    يمكن and ممكن is also the same meaning but different sub-slang . but stick to ممكن cause its the closest thing the common used in Egypt
