"Everything I do is for the lack of money." "I do everything for the lack of money." Are both sentences correct?

Neither one communicates correctly. "for" is the wrong word.
First fixing your examples,
"Everything I do is for love."
"I do everything for love."
These are almost the same. The second one can include some things done NOT for love also.
The "For" in this use, means "for the goal or purpose"
To state as you have your example, the person is trying not to have money.
Is the goal to get more money? Are the actions because of the lack of money?
Everything I do is because I am short of money.
Everything I do is to alleviate my lack of money.
There are other ways to say it, but "for" is not correct.

Yes, assuming the intended meaning is that lack of money motivates everything you do.
