1. My being here must embarrass them.
2. My being here would embarrass them.
3. Me being here would make them much more embarrassing.
Please correct and comment.
Thanks.

The 3rd is incorrect. It wouldn't 'make them more embarrasing'. It might make them more embarrassed.

Beeesneees,
'Me being here might make them much more embarrassed'
'Me being here would make them much more embarrassed'
Are they correct?
Thanks.
