And what is 'not have to'? I have heard you cannot say "De måste inte" but instead "de är inte tvungna"? Is that right?

have to is more måste. For blev tvungna, I would say were forced to in English. There is also a difference in time here. have to is present, so if you were to use tvungen it would be är tvungna instead. It's still a bit stronger than have to and closer to are forced to.

"Måste" or "behöver" most likely.
