Get = Gain possession of something
Have = To possess something
Can Get mean Have sometimes? "I can't go the cinema, I got/have got no money at all."
I see sentences like this a lot and I wonder about it.

In informal speech, it is common for English speakers in the U.S. to say "I've got something" (or "no something") in the sense of having a condition (like an illness) or living situation (like a job).
Less common is to say (for have) "I got" without "have" -- it sounds less educated and more like slang or dialect to say "I got no money" than to say "I've got no money" -- though it is common in some idiomatic speech.
In the sense of acquire or gain, "got" is common and grammatical: "I got a job offer yesterday" and "I got accepted at the university."
