I agree with Poli.

Here are a few other ideas:

no way jose - para nada, jamás, estás loco, ni en sueños
weird
- raro
hodge podge - una mezcla, una revoltura

This isn't really part of your question, but the thread's title is ¿comó se dice estas palabras? and it should be ¿Cómo se dicen estas palabras?

It's not really a big deal, and I only mentioned it to make sure you were aware of it. Title changed.

There are several ways to say these phrases, some more vulgar than others. You purposely used euphemisms in most cases, and I believe there are equivalents in Spanish, but the words and meanings can vary a great deal from country to country.

If you're willing to wait, we could probably come up with quite a number of choices.

Here are a couple of choices for the alligator one (although I think they lose their charm y sentido):
Hasta la vista, cocodrilo.
Hasta luego, cocodrilo.

Try some of these instead:
Adios carita de arroz
Adios granito de arroz
Adios corazón de arroz
Ay, te guacho, cucaracho
Me piro papiro
Me piro vampiro
Chao pescao
