Q: What is the difference between gonna go to the groceries and gonna go to the supermarket ?
A: There is not a native speaker of English anywhere that would say "I am gonna go to the groceries."

Groceries is a plural object, therefore it can not use the definite article "the" and can not be used as a destination (going).

However, it can be rephrased to "I am going to get groceries," which is actually a quite common phrase in the south and in the mid-west.

I am going to the grocery store = Common every day phrase
I am going to get groceries = Common every day phrase
I am going to the supermarket = Common every day phrase.

The first two however, imply that you are getting food because the everyday grocery store is intended as a means of selling food.

The last sentence with supermarket can imply groceries but it could also imply a entire list of other stuff, maybe you are getting clothes as well as food, maybe you are getting towels or pillows.

Grocery store = (Implies ) Food usually
Supermarket = (Implies) Food / everyday house hold items
Store = (Implies) Anything
Q: What is the difference between gonna and will and I'll fry an egg and I'm gonna fry an egg ?
A: Gonna is slang (shortened language) for going to. Its informal. For the most part will and gonna, or going to, mean the same thing. Gonna is least formal, will is in the middle, and going to is most formal.

You would say to your friend:
"Are you gonna fry an egg?"

You would say to a teacher or authority figure:
"I will fry an egg."

You would also write "I will..." In an essay.

Other questions about "Gonna"

Q: "I’m really gonna go all out in/of my excavating today!"
Could you tell me which is the right proposition in this sentence, "in" or "of"?
A: “In” or nothing at all. There are two separate pieces to your sentence.

In my excavating today, I’m really gonna go all out!

-I’m really gonna go all out!
-Doing what? (Or, With What?)
-Excavating! (Or, With my excavating!)

I’m really gonna go all out excavating/in my excavating/with my excavating!

There’s not really any difference in meaning between “in” and “with” here, except that “in” sounds better when you put the excavating part at the front.
