A: Sounds correct, although I rarely hear the phrase, "I am to move". I usually hear, "I have to".
Unless it's a spelling mistake and it was meant to say, "I aim to move".

If "i am to" is correct, i'd probably use "i am going to", but you've already specified that in #3.
Q: What is the difference between I'm going to visit NY to see my friend. and I'm going to visit NY for seeing my friend. ?
A: The correct way to say it would be "I'm going to NY to see my friend" As your main purpose for going to NY is to visit your friend who is already there. "Visit" in this case being replaced by "see", as "visit" generally feels stiff or impersonal to English speakers. "See" is much more friendly. ^^
