You will use anybody in a negative or interrogative sentence.
[USE OF "ANYBODY"]

[USE OF SOMEONE AND SOMEBODY]

Q: What is the difference between someone and somebody ?
A: More or less. The only distinction I can think of is that "someone" can carry the connotation that you have a specific person in mind (like the phrase "a certain someone/somebody"), whereas "anyone" is more general and is better to use if you don't have a specific person in mind.
Q: What is the difference between Put someone up and Drop in ?
A: I have to admit, I'm not sure about "put you up," I'd need more context on the conversation.
"Drop in" means to go see the person anytime with out an appointment or letting them know that you're coming by. The phrase "Drop in appointment" is commonly used by businesses like hair salons where you can get a service done without making an appointment first.
Q: What is the difference between "if someone said -." and "if someone was to say-." ?
A: The second phrase is more hypothetical, and we usually use it when talking about more unlikely situations. "If someone were to say 'I've always loved you' to your face, how would you feel?" The first is more conditional, e.g. "If someone said 'Hi' to me on the street, I would say 'Hi' back." You could use "If someone said" for hypothetical situations too, though, in casual English.
Q: What is the difference between have someone do something and get someone to do something ?
A: It's pretty much the same meaning. I guess the difference is "get them to do it" is active like u go out and persuade them. "Have someone do it" is passive
