Synonyms of "Eating" and their differences

Q: it’s not polite to her eating only one or two ramen ve It's not polite to her to eat only eat one or two ramen ve it’s not polite of her to eat only one or two ramen arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "polite to her" means that if you only eat one or two ramen, she will think you are impolite.

"it's not polite to her, eating one or two ramen" means that doing that is impolite in her opinion . it implies the action is being done right now.

"it's not polite to her, to only eat one or two ramen" is similar, but more informative of what is "not polite" rather than describing something being done now, or describes something already done.

"it's not polite of her to eat only one or two ramen" means that she is impolite when she eats one or two ramen, or if she had done that
Q: I started regretting eating sweets late at night.  ve I started to regret eating sweets late at night.  arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "I started regretting eating sweets late at night." sounds somewhat unnatural. This sounds as if both the "eating sweets" and the "regretting" are habitual (something they did often). For example, the speaker often ate sweets at night, and then developed a toothache which they didn't immediately get treatment for.

"I started to regret eating sweets late at night." sounds more natural. I understand this to mean that, the speaker is talking about a specific time they ate sweets at night and then suffered the consequences soon after. It could also be interpreted as habitual, depending on context.

For example, if the speaker is currently at a dentist appointment, and the dentist said "You have a cavity.", the speaker might say "At that moment, I started to regret eating sweets late at night all the time." In this case, the "eating sweets" is habitual, but the "regret" only occurred in the moment after the dentist mentioned the cavity.
