I've never heard "huggle" before...that may be a regional usage. I'd say cuddle and snuggle are roughly equivalent, though "snuggle" seems to me to have a connotation of places your faces together, in particular.
I would say that I cuddle my children.
I've never heard of huggle before, as well. To my knowledge, cuddle and snuggle both mean a prolonged and affectionate hug, but cuddle can be used regardless of the person/people involved whereas snuggle is more passionate and intimate insofar as it's what you'd do with your significant other.
