What is the difference between 404 and 401 errors and how does Google treat error codes?

404 and 410 HTTP status codes are very similar.

If you have a page that is temporarily down or available then use 404
If the same page is down forever and you are sure it will never come back then use 410

401 Error Messages:
Customized error messages, mostly used in large websites. This type of error messages are showed in various ways. For ex: Click here

404 Error:
Customized web pages, Shows when a user trying to opening a wrong URL/Page. HTTP 404 Error code is a Client side error - Showing that it is done by your mistake.

The role you should follow is if doubt then don't doubt. If you are not sure about something then don't risk it man SEO is hard to gain but very easy to lose.

In the internet pretty much everyone is talking about 404 not found redirect not 410!

What the code for both of them should look like?
Also does it really matter in SEO which one I use?

404 status code means that a resource or webpage cannot be found at the given URI and has no new redirect or known location.
The 410 status code is like a more specific version of 404. It means that a resource has been moved permanently and is not expected to return to the current URI. However it does not give any indication of a new location.

401 is a very general authentication failure. There should be sub-code information available in the error message that clarifies the reason for the failure.
404 - Responds with an error, but shows a custom page to help your visitors .

The 404 indicates, that the resource is not present at the given location, and it has probably never been (or server has no idea whether it has been).

The 410, on the other hand, indicates that resource is not present anymore, but it used to be there in the past. It's a useful hint for some clients such as search engines, spiders etc., because the can remove this resource from their indexes.

404 Error: The server informed us that the page that you ask him is unknown. It is therefore impossible to send you a satisfactory answer.
410 Error: The server informs you that the page you ask him is known, but that it is impossible to return it because it was deliberately removed from the results. He also informs us that he will never be possible for us to return a response with this Uri.
