How do you say the following in German?
- I want to eat an apple.

Can you apply the same context to all verbs?

I want to eat an apple.
- Ich will einen Apfel essen
- Ich möchte gerne einen Apfel essen (as @teylyn mentions, a more polite form)
I like to eat apples.
- Ich esse gerne Äpfel.
I have to eat an apple.
- Ich muss einen Apfel essen.
- Ich soll einen Apfel essen.
Concerning the last question, if you are asking whether the modal verbs "wollen" (to want) and "müssen" (have to/gotta/being forced to) apply for all verbs, they do.
