Synonyms of "Ever" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between ever and always ?
A: If someone asked; "Have you ever been to the circus?" 'Ever' in that case is asking if you had been to the circus ONCE.
"Have you always been to the circus?" 'Always' in that case is asking if you are at the circus CONSTANTLY.
Q: What is the difference between which ever and what ever ?
A: Whichever is used when there are options that have been stated.

For example
A: Do you want to have Subway or McDonald's for dinner?
B: Whichever.

But in the example above you can also use whatever which means you don't care which one is chosen.

A: What do you want for dinner?
B: Whatever

In this instance you can whatever which also has the meaning of you don't care what you eat, just anything. Mostly people say this if they don't care and they don't want to make a decision about it.

In the second example you can't say whichever because there are no options to choose from.
Q: What is the difference between ever and never and I have never ever been in París ?
A: Never is the negative form of ever:
I have never been in Paris.
I have not ever been in Paris.

These two sentences mean the same thing.

"Never ever" in your sentence above just emphasizes the "never."
So, for example:
Parent: "Would you ever do that?"
Child: "No, I would never ever ever do that!"
Q: What is the difference between ever and never ?
A: Never is similar to nunca. Ever is typically used in a question. When you ask "have you ever done this?" You are specifically asking have you done this *at any point in your life*.
Q: What is the difference between ever since and so far ?
A: "Ever since I started my diet, I haven't eaten any ice cream:
"I have exercised every day of the week so far"
