Tofugu has a lot of articles about these verb forms that you can check out yourself but heres it summarized:
Nai is negative plain form (not), but can be used for politeness and invitations
Masu is polite form
Ta is past form
Reru is potential form (can/be able to)
Te form links actions, events, and states. Since its difficult to sum up all its different uses, you should read the rest of it on Tofugu
