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.
