The switch is on the network live in production. If I was to change the IP address on the fly, will it knock everyone off the network/internet. Please let me know.

It will not knock people off. The management IP is for just that, management of the device. It has nothing to do with user traffic. That said, good practice is to make changes during a maintenance window, not in the middle of the day.
