Difference between で and て ?

Memorize it - ないでください is a fixed phrase. We don't say なくてください.

Could you also say 'ノートお見なくて下さい'?

Don't use the て form when making a negative request with kudasai, use a negative verb + で + ください

Why is 下さい with a kanji rejected?

Maybe that should be accepted, but it's usually written in kana alone.

I don't know how you got character input, but all hiragana is more common
