    Hello dear fellows, so after some research etc. i got the solution to create an if statement in iMacros,
    i also added some comments with it, have fun ;)

    URL GOTO=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
    'Set the VAR1 to the current url= https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
    URL GOTO=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Featured_content
    'Set the VAR2 to the current url= https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Featured_content
    '    1.Now !VAR3 is our answer from the if statement
    '    2.We need to assign the text from {{!VAR1}} to a var x,y,z,...
    '      In this case, we use the letter d and s, and assign text with \"....\" to the var
    '    3.We check if d and s are equal by if (d==s), there is also not equal (d!=s)
    '      Or bigger(but only for numbers) (d>s) or smaller (d<s)
    '    4.After the if we say what !VAR3 should become if the if statement is right
    '      This is done by creating a new var (in this case the x)
    '      However the output shall be again a text, so we assign x to https://www.google.de
    '      And do this by assigning text to a var with  \"....\"        so in this case {var x = \"https://www.google.de\";}
    '    5.After that we add the else, if the statement was false, and assign x to the text, which should
    '         !Be VAR3  when the statement was wrong, and we do this again the same way        so in this case {var x=\"https://www.youtube.com\";}
    '       6. At the end we "call" x and tell that whatever x has become, it is now !VAR3
    SET !VAR3 EVAL("var d=\"{{!VAR1}}\"; var s=\"{{!VAR2}}\" ; if (d==s){var x = \"https://www.google.de\";} else {var x=\"https://www.youtube.com\";} x;") 
    'checking if code worked (and it did)
    URL GOTO={{!VAR3}}
    'you can of course change the SET !VAR1 or !VAR2 to some text inside a page, or whatever you like
