    Sure, why not? They’ve implied that your implied suggestion that someone hates you is unfounded, as you’re likeable.

    it is what is called a rhetorical question.  This means that the question is not really a question, because the answer is supposed to be obvious and known without saying, without asking: no one could hate you, is the implied meaning of the question "Who could ever hate you, how could anyone hate you?"  No one could hate you, it is not possible for anyone to hate you.  It is a silly idea to even consider.  Look at how stupid it sounds to even ask the question: there is only one very obvious answer.

    Yes, you could say it to some one you like.

    It is a redundant question. That means no answer is expected.

    It mean the person does not think anyone could hate you.
