I'd like to construct this sentence, which one is a better way to put it?
I like you for who you are OR I like you as you are
What is the difference between for what something is vs as something is?

They'd normally be understood as meaning two slightly different things...
I like you for who you are
I like you because I like your inner qualities as a person, rather than because of "superficial" attributes (beauty, wealth, status, etc.)
I like you as you are
I don't want you to change - exactly how you are now is how I like you being
