    "interfere and intervene"

    interfere with sth/sb
    interfere in sth/sb
    intervene with sth/sb
    intervene in sth/sb

    Are they grammatically correct and have the same meaning?
    THANK YOU

    They are different in meaning.

    I'd like to know as well is it possible to use it as

    interfere in/with

    and intervene in only.
