    Niether, actually.

    You might say, "You are welcome to send me ... " if you are inviting them to send you something. However, when you are offering to send, you would say, "I would be pleased to send you ..."

    Your answer is really fantastic!!! I am still laughing

    So, for understanding you explanation better:

    I am very welcome any your request for a detailed CV.

    I know that it is horrible and I will never use it though just for example for understanding how to use welcome, is it correct?

    ???

    Try instead, "I would welcome any request for a detailed CV."
    Or "I welcome any request..."

    Your use of welcome here is as an adjective. Substitute another adjective and see how it sounds. How about "I am very pleased." That sounds all right. But then, finish the sentence and it falls apart: "I am very pleased any your request...." You might rescue the sentence by changing it to finish "I am very pleased to receive any request for...."

    But I think you should stick to "I welcome your request..." or "I would be pleased to send you ..."
