Llamo -> first person singular. Gusta -> third person singular. The form of the verb agrees with the SUBJECT of the sentence. The constructions of these two verbs are different: YO (subject first person singular) me llamo (verb first person singular) Pedro. La pizza (subject third person singular) me (indirect object) gusta (verb third person singular). This is a tricky syntax point. I hope this explanation helps!

Los dos pertenecen a la primera conjugación cantar, gustar Yo canto / gusto Tu cantas / tu gustas El canta / el gusta Yo canto una canción => sujeto yo => primera persona. A mi me gusta esa canción => sujeto esa canción => tercera persona

"Llamo" is the verb "llamar" first person / present simple: "Me llamo María" "Gusta" is the verb "gustar" first person / present simple: "Me gusta correr" Those are verbs, not adjectives. The adjectives can be female or male in Spanish: Pelota: female Libro: male

llamar is a reflexive verb, so it needs the pronoun me: me llamo Elisa me gusta is reflexive and it is in passive voice Las manzanas me gustan. you could change the order to: Me gustan las manzanas ; but you can see the verb is in plural, and Yo (I) is not the subject.
