If I was on a high ledge or a building and I shot a guard with an arrow, will I get caught? I mean I know it all depends on if you are detected or not but does it injure the guards and they will not see you?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
You won't do more damage shooting from a roof compared to shooting from anywhere else, elevation is not a factor in damage calculations. It will be easier to stay undetected if you are in a location that is unreachable by your victim, but regular rules apply, if you are heavily illuminated or have low sneak skill then you will likely get detected.
