If I want to say, for example,

I'm waiting for Jason


I'm not in this for the money

What would be the particle? Ni?

There is no direct equivalent. When it comes to particles and prepositions, you can never expect a one-to-one correspondence. At least に does not work for your examples. Weblio (English-Japanese dictionary for Japanese people learning English) lists over 20 definitions and over 50 possible translations of for. The correct particle would be に, へ, の, と or を depending on the sentence.

I'm waiting for Jason.

I'm not in this for the money.
