Hi,

The sentences are not correct. You wrote:

1) how about we hook up lunch ?
2) if is going to be any good :

First, keep proper capitalization. Then use proper spacing between the last word and question mark. Finally, use a period and not a colon. You also are not using prepositions that are needed in your sentences. Here are the corrections.

1) How about we hook up for lunch?
2) Is it going to be any good?

Regarding the second sentence, I'm not sure if you meant "If it is going to be..." or "Is it going to be..."

Meaning of the first question:

"How about" is a suggestion
"hook up" is to meet

Basically it is asking to meet for lunch.

Meaning of the second question:

If it is a question with "Is it..." then you are asking if it will be good or not good.
If it is a statement with "If it is..." then you are saying yes with a condition that it is good.
