I owe $1 on my federal- 2018 ambendment return. Do I need to pay it?

If not, the 2018 return will not have the missing 1099-div(s). Is it that fine?

Don't bother filing the amendment for a $1 change ... the IRS will not expect or require it.

I owe less than 10$ to federal on each, 2019 & 2020 ambendment return.

I am planning to use Direct Debit option. Should I wait after filing 2020 ambendment return to receive the PIN then file 2019 ambendment return?

No.  You will not receive any PIN and amended returns take 6-8 months to process.

I would skip mailing in any amendment  or paying it  if you owe less than $10 ... the IRS will automatically recalculate the return and never send a bill for such a small amount.
