By the time you redo the wheel, chain, shiftgear et al you will be in the cost range of a good used bike already set up.
While you get an option to entertain a 3 speed IGH with cassette , if you are not loving the project, I would say rhenning is right
about what to do. Consider Yan's Downtube or grab a used Dahon and just drive off.
Unless you can grab a used wheel with what you need, it's a no brainer.
Used 3 speed IGH bikes go for less than the price of a hub
