    What do you say when you visit somebody and/or sleepover?

    Are there any? If so, would there be a difference between saying that to a friend or a stranger, like, sb's parents?

    'Sleepover' (one word) is a noun. We sleep over (two words).

    If you want to thank them, you could use something like Thank you for having me in BrE.

    Ah! If that was the intended meaning, that would work in AmE also.
