Can you write a show if rule for LIKE? Can you have 2 session variables on one page, one inside the other?

Can you write a show if rule for LIKE? Can you have 2 session variables on one page, one inside the other?

This obviously works
if ("" . $WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("salesrep") . "" == 'SB' ) {
<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled UpdateButton" value="" onclick="document.location.href='user-update.php?id=<?php echo($WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("id")); ?>';"/>
<input type="button" class="formButton ResultsPageButton unstyled DeleteButton" value="" onclick="document.getElementById('WADADeleteRecordID').value=<?php echo($WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("id")); ?>;document.getElementById('deleteBox').style.display = 'block';document.getElementById('deleteMessage').style.display = 'table';" />

I tried this
$WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("salesrep") . "" == '%SB'

I just need SB, SBEB, SBJJ - so any of those combinations in the sale rep field will validate access.
If I cannot do LIKE, maybe elseif - I don't know how to write the else if, so is that is what I should do, can you please send me an example.

Also I want the user id of 9068 to have access to all the buttons via session ID, but I am already restricting the content of the page with the session accesslevel and the buttons are obviously within the content. Does it work to 'nest' session variable restrictions?

Thank you!

if (in_array($WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("salesrep"), array("SB", "SBEB", "SBJJ"))) {

or maybe just:
if (strpos($WADAtbl_directorylistings->getColumnVal("salesrep"), "SB") === 0) {
