I was watching this video, at around 2:45 the following sentence popped up on the screen:
*sound effect added for awesome.
Is "for awesome" correct here?

This is a colloquial (and internet-idiomatic) way of speaking or writing.
sound effect added for effect.
Is a very common expression. They have swapped out effect for awesome because it's fun. The effect they are going for is to make it more awesome.
Similarly I might say
with extra bbq sauce for tasty-noms.
with extra Seth Rogan for LOLs.
