Here's the sentence from "how I met your mother"

  1. I´d feel a little Stepford turning down a huge opportunity to chase some guy I´d only known 2 months

And here, does "turning down" mean "if I turned down"?

  1. I´d feel a little Stepford if I turned down a huge opportunity to chase some guy I´d only known 2 months

So, #1 and #2 are the same meaning?

Both of your sentences have the same meaning of how the speaker would feel if they missed an opportunity

turning down a huge opportunity, I would feel a little Stepford
if I turned down a huge opportunity, I would feel a little Stepford

more of a difference would occur if

I feel a little Stepford turning down a huge opportunity

which would place the feel as a result of an action
