Q: What is the difference between I like beans, moreover, I like rice and Besides I like beans, I like rice and In addition, I like beans, I like rice. ?
A: I understand all of your sentences 🙂 but they do not sound natural.

lf you want to use these phrases you can add a few words...

I like beans, and, moreover, I also like rice.
Besides liking beans, I also like rice.
In addition to liking beans, I also like rice.

Those phrases still sound a bit more formal for use in a business, legal, or academic setting. When talking about something common like food preferences the sentence I gave you the first time sounds more natural.

I hope that helps.

Other questions about "Bean"

Q: The beans are quite delicious! does this sound natural?
A: Grammatically correct, but it just sounds just a bit strange to me because "delicious" means "very good" or "quite good". So, it kind of sounds redundant.

"It's very delicious" sounds a bit unnatural to me, too.

Most native English speakers use "delicious" on its own.
e.g.

very delicious▲🤔
quite delicious▲🤔

delicious自体で既にかなり美味しい、とてと美味しい、という意味なので。

Q: Usually I keep these sweet bean jellies in a refrigerator.
When I feel a little hungry I just have one. does this sound natural?
A: Yes, it sounds natural.

Usually I keep these (sweet bean jellies) (jelly beans) in the refrigerator. When I feel a little hungry I just have one.

I think you mean jelly beans, not "bean jellies".
If I'm right, if you have jelly beans, no one keeps jelly beans in the refrigerator.
Jelly beans are always sweet, so you don't need the word "sweet".

We say "the" refrigerator when it's a refrigerator in your home. We say "a" refrigerator when it's a refrigerator in a store or shop. For example:
I put the milk in the refrigerator.
I bought a refrigerator today.

You can say "I just have one" or "I just eat one". They mean the same thing and they're both used.
Q: Japanese eat rotten beans. It's peculiar to Japan. And the peans has strange smells. does this sound natural?
