Gern x Mögen

Hey there, can someone explain me what's the difference between "gern" and "mögen"? When does one use one and the other?

mögen means like

gerne can have different meanings eg:

willingly, gladly, with pleasure etc. like is only one of the possible meanings.

you can also use gerne to put a stronger emphasis on some words

eg :mögen or wollen. etc.

ich mag das - i like that

ich mag das gerne - i really like it

ich mag das sehr gerne- i really like it very much

ich will das- i want that

ich will das gerne- i really want it

ich will das sehr gerne- i really want it very much

we also use gerne as a respond when someone says danke (thanks) either just gerne or gern geschehen.
