Q: What is the difference between gather and reunion ?
A: #1) gather = verb, reunion = noun; gatherING = noun (can also be a verb), reunITING = verb

#2) a reunion is a type of gathering, there are many other types.

#3) "reunion" implies getting back together with many people from your distant past. You would not normally use it to talk about a routine meeting the way we do in Spanish. Normally a person will only have 3-4 reunions in their whole lifetime, like a "family reunion" or a "high school reunion".

"I went to a gathering of 200 people which reunited all my friends from high school."

"I went to a reunion of 200 people which gathered together all my friends from high school."

Both versions are OK and almost equal but the 2nd one is better because "reunion" applies more to this type of a gathering.
Q: What is the difference between gather and join ?
A: You can "join" a group or join in a conversation. The group you joined, could be called a "gathering". You can gather together a crowd of people or gather eggs from a hen house. You may join something that is already happening. To gather something is a more active process where you are the initiator of the event many times. I've heard the phrases "join in prayer" and "gather in prayer" which mean the same thing though.
