How are they different?
had better, ought to, should, etc.
Modal verbs of obligation, must, have to, have got to, should and ought to, are used to imply firm obligation, necessity or recommendation. Choosing the right modal depends on the type of obligation, the tense and in some cases the level of language.
BOOK page 53 Grammar A and B
There are two types of modal verbs of obligation; those that primarily express a firm obligation or necessity - must and have to - and those that express a recommendation or moral obligation - should and ought to /ct/
"Had better" is most commonly used to make strong recommendations or to tell people what o do; it is more urgent than should or ought to. It can also be used to express desperate hope (immediate future) as well as warn people.
