Q: What is the difference between I loathe to doing and I am loathe to do ?
A: Loathe (spelled with an E)is a verb in the first sentence so you would say "I loathe doing this."

Loath (spelled without an E) is an adjective in the second sentence. So "I am loath to admit." would mean "I hate to admit".
Q: What is the difference between loathe and hate and detest ?
A: I could agree with that. The only reasons I really put 'loathe' higher than detest is that 1. It's less commonly used, so it sounds a bit more intense when it is used, and 2. Detest comes from Latin (detestari) and loathe comes from Old English (lāthian). As Germanic words tend to be a bit more harsh, I think loathe goes a bit higher.

But again, all three are pretty much interchangeable.
