A mate is constantly posting rubbish and I want to block them without them knowing and without unfriending them.

How to do this?

Also - How to stop all notifications?

You can't.  Once you block someone that is it.  They are blocked AND unfriended.

How to stop all notification from said mate?  Unfriend/block.

They won't be specifically notified that they are unfriended/blocked but you will drop off of as one of their friends.

Or, you can use the unfollow option which means you are still friends but don't see all their 'rubbish'

As noted, you cannot do what you want. I just unfriend and move on. Unfriend is normally not a personal slight.
