Is there a stronger emphasis when using para nada/en absoluto? Thank you

Hola Emanuel

You can drop it as you said and it still means the same:

No me gusta nada la cerveza I don't like beer at all.

No me gusta la cerveza para nada - I don't like beer at all.

The second with "para nada" is a bit more emphatic than just "nada", I would say.

Also notice that if we use "nada" we normally place it right after "gusta", but with "para nada" the most natural place is at the end. 

Saludos
