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

I do not know anybody like that guy.


[USE OF SOMEONE AND SOMEBODY]

Q: Qual é a diferença entre someone e 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: Qual é a diferença entre Put someone up e 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: Qual é a diferença entre "if someone said -." e "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: Qual é a diferença entre have someone do something e 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

Translations of "Someone"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? I met someone in person who I knew from online. It was our first meet. "I'm glad that you are not a robot. there was a possibility that you were a robot" plz correct me (tense)
A: You’re good. The sentence sounds good. Though, you don’t need to say robot again in the next sentence. You’ve already implied that you’re talking about it in the first sentence. So it’ll be just “I’m glad that you’re not a robot. There was a small chance that you were, but you aren’t.” :)

Other questions about "Someone"

Q: What does "at someone's adress" mean ?
A:

Someone’s address – the place where they live. The number of the house and the name of the street.

If you are at their address, you are at their house.

Q: If someone was having a math test and turns out their answers are correct, can we say, "All of her answers check out." instead of "All of her answers correct."?
A:

Don’t say that.

Although it seems as if it is technically correct, the meaning is actually quite different.

We say that somebody’s answers “check out“ if we discover that they are being TRUTHFUL. It has nothing to do with being correct.

– He claims to be visiting Indonesia for six months
– yes, that checks out. His Visa is for six months.

Truthful – honest – not correct, like in an exam. He told the truth.

It's just a topic or an idea without any verbs.
