: : I would like to know the meaning of "hang not, leave him".

: Without a context I would guess it means "Don't stay in the relationship with him and leave him immediately".
: To "hang" with someone is to enjoy that someone's company.

Again without context it could be a leftover from the old western movies where leaving someone was death as sure as hanging and furthermore one did not waste the rope.
