    You can say "I like adventures very much." This is very common way to say it.
    You can also say "I very much like adventures." The "very much" modifies "like."
    You cannot say "I like very much adventures."

    For this pattern, the modified can go before the verb, or at the end of the sentence, but not after the verb.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
