Lots of personal/object pronouns in same sentence

hola todos,

yo pienso podéis ayudarme con esta pregunta,

como se dice correctamente? (I keep on thinking too literally from English, I think, and get confused!)

"do you want me to do that for you"

"do you want me to do it for you"

"do you want me to do that to you"

"do you want me to do it to you"

gracias pos su ayuda,
un saludo,
Craig.

Re: Lots of personal/object pronouns in same sentence

Aveces ejemplos son la mejor forma de aprender.

Do you want me to do that for you?
Do you want me to do it for you?
¿Quieres que te lo haga?
¿Quiere que se lo haga?
¿Quieres que lo haga para tí? (If you are the recipient)
¿Quieres que haga eso para tí? (If you are the recipient)
¿Quieres que lo haga por tí? (If I'm going to do it in your place- instead of you)
¿Quieres que haga eso por tí? (If I'm going to do it in your place- instead of you)
For usted, the last four would be:
¿Quiere que lo haga para usted?
¿Quiere que lo haga por usted?
¿Quiere que haga eso por usted? (If I'm going to do it in your place- instead of you)
¿Quiere que haga eso por usted? (If I'm going to do it in your place- instead of you)
Lo is it, and eso is that, but in Spanish they are often interchangeable (more so than in English) and I would say the versions with "lo" are more common.

Do you want me to do that to you?
¿Quieres que te haga eso a tí?

Do you want me to do it to you?
¿Quieres que te lo haga?

If you have any more questions, just ask.
