A: There isn't much difference, it just depends on the effect you want it to have. The only thing I would change is the second one to "I was sorry for Jane but she had it coming."
Q: What is the difference between Jane is not less beautiful than Sue and Jane is no less beautiful than Sue ?
A: "Jane is no less beautiful than Sue" is correct. The first sentence should be "Jane isn't any less beautiful than Sue". In either case, they mean the same thing
Q: What is the difference between Jane who was so small. and Jane was so small. and why added "who" in sentence? ?
A: In the first case, the sentence must not be complete, otherwise there should be no "who".
The "who", in that sentence, is a relative pronoun, used to introduce a relative clause to a previous clause. Look the example:

"Jane was small" + "Jane travelled to South Korea" = "Jane, WHO was small, travelled to South Korea"
(Notice that I have two phrases/sentences, and I turned them into one with the pronoun "who", to avoid repeating the name "Jane". And since "Jane" is a person, the pronoun used must be "who").

Other example:

"Seoul is the capital of South Korea" + "Seoul is a beautiful city" = "Seoul, WHICH is the capital of South Korea, is a beautiful city" (Since "Seoul" is not a person, I used the relative pronoun "which", to introduce the second sentence)

That's why, in your question, the first option is incorrect if considered as a single sentence, but would be complete with a relative clause.

Sorry for the long explanation. I hope it's clear.
