Actually, [1]<=>[3] holds if E is metrizable, see e.g. Theorem 1.1
of my book "Integration theory - a second course".
[3]=>[2] is trivial. So your question comes down to whether a
locally weak measurable function must be locally almost S-measurable
(if necessary, one can assume also that the function is almost
separably valued, although I do not think that this plays a role here).
I do not have a copy of Hille/Phillips at hand in the moment, but isn't
it possible to just mimic the proof by using the separation theorem
for locally convex spaces (e.g. from Rudin's "Functional Analysis")
