The biggest difference is that "ease" is a noun and a verb, and "easy" is an adjective.
Roughly speaking: the opposite of difficult is easy, and the opposite of difficulty is ease (but only in the uncountable sense - you can talk about the difficulty/ease of a task, and coming across "a difficulty", but not "*an ease").
To ease something into somewhere means to put it in slowly and gradually - the opposite of forcing it in. Examples:
Ease - basically means comfort or pleasing Easy - refers to mostly the load of an action being performed, kind of "not difficult". needs less efforts to complete it
