Synonyms of "Like" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I loves/I likes her and I loved/liked her ?
A: Loves/likes is present tense, meaning you like her now. Loved/liked means it's in the past, implying you don't like her anymore
Q: What is the difference between "if you like" "if you'd like" and "if you prefer" "if you can" ?
A: The differences between these phrases are very minor. They all have the same basic meaning.

There is no difference between "if you like" and "if you'd like". "You'd" is simply a contraction of "you" and "would". Often, you can use "you" or "you'd" interchangeably.

For "if you prefer", the word prefer/preference is asking about which option someone would like the most. Ex:
"We could walk on the beach. Or, if you'd prefer, we could hike through the forest".

Finally, "can" asks about how capable or able you are. You would use this if you were uncertain about someone's schedule/plans/abilities. For example:
"I don't know if you have homework, but if you can, would you wash the dishes?"
Q: What is the difference between I liked it and I have liked it and I like it ?
A: They are different tenses. "I like it" is in the present tense. You like it right now. "I liked it"- past tense. You used to like it, but you don't like it anymore.
"I have liked it"- you liked it in the past up until now, and you may possibly still like it
Q: What is the difference between and the like and and whatnot ?
A: They're essentially the same.
'And the like' might mean that you can think of other options (but choose not to say them).
'And whatnot' can mean either that you can think of others, or that you can't.

Either one will work most of the time.
Q: What is the difference between would like to do and incline to do ?
A: "Inclined to do" feeling pressured to do something.

"would like to do" wanting to do something that you can't.

I felt inclined to go to the dinner party because everyone was waiting for me.

I would like to go to the dinner party but I am too busy.
