No significant difference at all in meaning. The first is more formal.

Hi! all members here in this forum!
I just want to know about the user "any" in the sentence!
I will be correct to say that! (1) I need any one among you. (2) I don't want any kind of this car. (3) You might come at home at any time you want.
I need your correction.
Thanks.

1) I need any one of you.

2) I don't want this kind of car. ('any' doesn't work)

3) You can come home any time you want.

That is too general a question to answer in a simple forum post.
I suggest you start with a Learner's dictionary
http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/
and look at the many uses and examples of the word 'for' there.
