Could I get unemployment if I was fired for being late too many times?

That is up to the state unemployment department's decision, when and if the employer contests your application, as is their right. If the employer doesn't say anything, you'll get the benefit you qualify for. If they do contest it and claim that you were fired for cause, the cause being chronic tardiness, the state may deny paying you.

Nope. If you are fired for a reason you won't get it. Unemployment is for people who lose their job through no fault of their own.

Nope. You are unemployed through your own fault. Unemployment is for those who lose their jobs through no fault of their own.

Unemployment is for people that lose the job by no fault of their own. You can certainly apply, but it is highly unlikely you would be approved.

Nope. You were fired for cause.

they will definitely ask why you got fired from those jobs when applying to those jobs, but if you commit to them and not be late anymore then you'd probably get employed

I don't think so. You can get unemployment if you're laid off, but not if you're fired for cause.
