    A groan is more gutteral and often denotes pain (like to a pun, a hangover, or being hit over the head with something).  A moan usually denotes pleasure.

    Not a lot for me.  A groan is more of a complaint in purpose.  A moan is just a noise.  A groan is a type of moan, perhaps.

    A groan is really serious, either from pain or from being in a seriously bad situation.

    A moan comes in a less bad situation, mere annoyance, not real pain.
