What is the status or rank or position or importance of Gavriel as an Angel in Tanach or Oral Law and what causes it to be at that position or rank?
Gabriel is a כרוב (Cherub), which is a level in the hierarchy of angels.
No person chose for him to be at that level. Rather, cherub is his nature. In the same way that we are people, Gabriel is a cherub.
