Question: Sarili vs Mismo
 
i understand these both as putting "self" to a pronoun, e.g. ang sarili ko. Is there a difference?

"mismo" is more often attached to a pronoun or person...
Ex: ako mismo, siya mismo, ikaw mismo.
 
Mismo also has other connotations...
 
They are definitely not interchangeable.

Mismo is an emphasis to whatever pronoun which denotes a certainty of an action by or fact about that pronoun.
 
Q: Ito ba ang kinain mo? / Is this the one you ate?
A:
 
Iyan *mismo* ang nakita ko.
That *exactly* (or, itself) what I saw.
 
Ako *mismo* ang gagawa.
I will do it *myself*
 
Sarili is used to refer to oneself. Usually to persons, but sometimes to things as well:
 
Kilala ko ang *sarili* ko.
I know *myself*.
 
Lumipad nang walang gumagalawa *sa sarili* niya.
It flew unprovoked *by itself*
 
Sometimes, mismo and sarili may be put together for greater emphasis of certainty:
 
Sarili ko mismo ang nakita ko sa salamin
It was me, myself, who I saw in the mirror.
 
The words "ko" "akin" "niya" and similar qualifiers will always be with "sarili" to qualify it.
