    He kids with everyone.

    "He likes to joke with everyone."

    "He likes to kid with everyone."

    "He kids with everyone."

    "He deludes with everyone."

    Please check.

    Re: He kids with everyone.

    The first is natural.

    I don't find the second or third particularly natural. Others might.

    The fourth is not possible.

    Google also shows second sentences when we search for the meaning of "kidding."

    Re: He kids with everyone.

    Google is not the place to look for the meanings of words. Use one or more of the dictionaries at www.onelook.com.

    Could you please tell is this the only sentence we can use to say that "he likes to joke with everyone?"

    "He likes to kid everyone he’s the big macho tough guy." That dictionary is also showing this.

    Sorry to bother you again and again but I have a doubt. Earlier you were saying that "he likes to kid everyone" was a wrong sentence. Could you please resolve my query?

    It's fine, though somewhat informal, in AmE. You could say He likes to kid around​ in the same register.

    Re: He kids with everyone.

    I would certainly prefer "He likes to kid around with everyone" in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
