A: Unless makes a sentence conditional. "I can go, unless my mom decides that I can't."

Regardless is sort of the opposite. If it starts a sentence than the word cancels out the previous sentence. "My mom said I can't go. regardless, I will still go"
If it doesn't start a sentence, then it means whatever sentence follows will not be taken into account.
"I can go regardless of what my mom says."

Regardless actually comes from "regard". One meaning of regard is to think about something. "She regarded what her friend just said to her", so "regardless" basically means to not think about something.

A: There is not much difference between the two. You can use them both in the same manner:
