Your question regarding credit depends. And regarding your other questions, there are multiple questions with not enough details to know of all your options. If you cannot afford an attorney, consider visiting a local legal aid clinic if you do not work and qualify for assistance from them. You could consider coming to some agreement with the landlord to settle and remain, but if you do not have the entire amount of rent to become current, then your options might be limited. You might consider finding another place to live before the eviction shows on your credit.
The landlord is not allowed to refuse the rent if you have the amount demanded and offer to pay during the 3 day period set up by the 3 day notice. After that period expires, however, the landlord can refuse to accept rent and proceed with the eviction.
I suggest you speak to a tenant's rights attorney as soon as possible to determine whether you have any other defenses.
