They are the same meaning, but "I would like" sounds more polite or gentle.

"I would like" is the more polite version of "I want". It's exactly the same as the difference between "Je voudrais" and "Je veux" in French.

Yes. "I would like to know" will be used more commonly in a professional setting.
