I know what 'd rather mean.
I came across a sentence using 'd rather: If you'd rather not answer, you don't have to.

I know what it means. But I want to know if I write this sentence like this way will it change its meaning or will be be grammatically incorrect?
My version: If you'd rather not to answer, you don't have to.

To is not used with that expression, so it's grammatically wrong; instead you can use:
Prefer + to
