"if you not" sounds classic to me. nowadays, it is simplified by "if you don't". anaway, "if" can either be replaced by "should", "had" or "were" just to sound a bit exciting and convincing. if you have anyquestion = should you have any question if not for this guy, the girl would've not been saved = were it not for this guy, the girl would've not been saved if I knew it in the first place = had I known it in the first place... back to your question, they are quite the same in meaning, it's just the style of saying/writing it. :)
