What's the difference between 'helst' and 'heller' looking at for example: 'Jenta vil heller ha iskrem'?

'helst' is closer to 'preferably', while 'heller' is closer to 'rather'.

Your sentence would be "The girl would rather have ice cream."

Oh, bummer, I thought this was another literary reference. You really should accept "I would prefer not to," for those of us who find it an irresistible translation.
