- も is a particle, it needs to follow the noun it is in relation to. You do not need to then use both も and を, just も.

- The ~がすき structure takes a noun, however たべる / たべます is a verb. So in order to use this with the ~がすき, it first needs to be changed to a noun (much like in English when we would say 'I like eating' - where 'eating' has been nominalised).

- 'Koto / こと' is a noun (literally meaning 'thing') which nominalises a verb when used after the dictionary/plain form (the form ending in -u, not -masu).

When joining two verbs in Japanese, it is common occurance that one will need to be nominalised first (note that すき is not a verb in Japanese, it is an adjective). Another example is using 'dekiru/dekimasu' / 'can' (potential form/-reru form aside).

For example:
Watashi no sakana wa niwatori niku wo taberu koto ga dekimasu.
My fish can eat chicken [meat].
