Does it really make a difference to you if a Presidential candidate gets endorsed by someone?

Only if I'm remotely interested in the opinions of the person doing the endorsing.

If the endorsement comes from a friend whose opinion I respect I'll probably take it into consideration. If it comes from some over-hyped celebrity who thinks their political opinions matter just because they are an actor or a musician, not at all.

When I go to a gig to watch Donald Trump play guitar or watch a movie to see Joe Biden as an international secret agent, maybe then I'll care what Bono or Robert de Niro think about politics.

Sometimes....

Since I won't vote for a pro-abortion candidate, I DO look to several online resources and organizations (including state pro-life ones) so that I know where candidates stand on this issue. This usually impacts only the primaries (voting among Republicans) since in my state, all Democrats are passionately in favor of the killing of over 60,000 innocent, defenseless children each year in California - it's practically a Sacrament for Democrats. But there are Republicans here who support this mass killing, too and those Republicans usually hide that view from voters in the primaries.

It depends on who is doing the endorsing.

Unless they're at the bottom of a really big check. Then I'm happy.
