If we take the entries of the (standard $3 \times 3$) Heisenberg group to live in the Gaussian integers $\mathbb{Z}[i]$, what is the structure of this group? Are all of its representations known?

A quick google search produced this paper. It gives generators and relations for the Heisenberg group over rings of integers of quadratic fields and discusses its representations.
