which would be better to use because when i use my gadget pedal distortion it's to loud but when i use my amp distortion i can hear the exact tune of me guitar and i can adjust the tone of the distortion but which is much better

Second, what the hell is a "gadget"? Is it a pedal of some sort?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

amp is usually better.

you already answered your own question. think about it. go with what sounds best to you. generally speaking, amp distortion will be better than pedal distortion (depending on the amp and pedal in question, of course).
