What's the (general) practical Difference between one of the 613 Mitzvahs ,counted by the Monay Hamotzvos,whether its an Asay or Lo-Tasay and an (Asay or Lo-Tasay) that isn't part of the 613 Mitzvahs?

Surely, with the harsh Machlokisim, and (esp. The Ram"bam's ingenious calculations and the fact that he felt it necessary as a Rishon to correct a Goan based on that establishing his 14 Rules) There are differences both quality and quantitatively.

But what are they?

    Can you give an example of a biblical command not counted in the 613? I didn't think there were any. – Double AA Jul 19 '20 at 16:35

    @DoubleAA I'm not sure I'm following your question. Let's say the Bahag and Rambam argue if mitzvos that weren't said ledoros make the list or not. What would be the practical difference if they make the list or not? Does anything change if the mitzvah of writing the torah on large stones is in taryag, or no? Everyone agrees the Jews were commanded to do it, but the Rambam holds it's not in the list, and Bahag apparently disagrees. – robev Jul 19 '20 at 17:51
