Meccha means very or really. Meccha comes from mecha-kucha ni. Mecha-kucha means awfully, chaiotically. Japanese people often say that mecha-kucha takaine, which means it is very expensive.
Meccha is used among younger people nowadays, instead of mecha-kucha. Originally Meccha is used in Kansai area (around Osaka). Younger people tend to use Kansai dialect to sound more posh.

During Golden week, I went to USJ (Universal Studios Japan!!!), since there was a new attraction called Dispicable Me opened. Minion! Minion! Minion!
There was also a street show of Minions, called Hacha-Mecha minions.
So, what does Hacha-Mecha mean?
Hacha-Mecha means chaotic.
We say that my girl friend is Hacha-Mecha. However, we use Hacha-Mecha in more cute way, rather than serious way.
