Should なきゃならない be included in this section or is it a different grammar point?

Hi everyone, what's the difference between ~と and ~なければならない?

と is a particle for "and" and "with", while なければならない means "have to", so they're not really similar at all.

Did you mean ないと instead of と ?

ないと is a shortened casual form of なくてはいけない, which is another way of saying "have to", but it isn't quite as strong as なければならない.
