go to
settings=>Messages=>Forward text message

should appear on your Mac a code to pair the iPhone...

On my MBA the code does not appear

obviously you have to be on the same network and have the same apple ID on both Mac and iPhone

I also had 3 listed. I think you may have performed clean installs without logging out of iMessage like me. Changing my Apple ID password got rid of the "ghost devices". Be warned that you won't be able to change back to your original password though.
