    You're down to a Description mortar and pestle, that is not a bad choice. If you buy a set, you can also smoosh herbs, and some home cooks are credited with being able to make aioli in the thing. Oh, and if you're in to suffereing, you could probably use a box grater and a rolling pin and wax paper, but why?

    Perhaps you could use a coarse grate,followed by a fine mesh run through a food mill,or chop,cut up,or break up the liver with the pointy side of a kitchen mallet and then push it through a strainer,or sieve.

    Smash the lightly cooked livers down with a fork, If your'e looking for a smoother pate, press it through it a nylon strainer/sieve.

    mash it as best as you can then press it though a sieve. The problem will be if you are using onions, they are a bit difficult to get through the sieve. I would saute them, caramelize them until they are super soft and "jammy" they should go through just fine.

    Just buy Braunschweiger already made.

    Or you can cover the liver with plastic wrap or parchment paper, and  roll over it with a rolling pin.   Or even mash it with a potato masher.

    It’s often hand mashed or smoothed with a hand mixer.

    Use a food mill or a fine mesh strainer

    I don't think you can, or not satisfactorily. Get a blender!
