Recently, I've watched one film and (have?) met there one interesting, at least for me, phrase.

...that is nothing compared to what I could be, and perhaps should, be asking for.

My question is, what if I wanted to replace 'for' closer to the beginning? How should I do this?

...that is nothing compared to that for what I could, and perhaps should, be asking.

...that is nothing compared to what for I could, and perhaps should, be asking.

As for me, I don't really think the second one has even a bit of sense, yet I'm not sure.

Thank you in advance, and if you don't mind could you explain the '(have?)', I mean that I'm wondering whether I should write it or not (I think I should not).

When you put move the preposition from the end of the sentence to before the verb, we add which to it.

That is nothing compared to that for which I could, and perhaps should, be asking.
