darle gusto a alguien = to give pleasure to someone
darle gusta a alguien

Me da gusto que hayas respondido.
= It gives me pleasure that you've answered.

When you say that something is giving you pleasure, you should shift into the subjunctive mood in the dependent clause. So, the first sentence you wrote has the wrong noun (gusta instead of gusto), but has a subjunctive mood verb in the dependent clause. The second sentence has the right noun (gusto), but doesn't utilize the subjunctive mood in the dependent clause.

Yes, emotion (especially personal feelings) is one of the reasons the subjunctive is needed. The difference between the two verb forms you listed can be seen if you look at the verb haber in both the present indicative and the present subjunctive moods. You'll find they are both the same person.
