    "I need some money." <--correct?
    "I need some moneys." <--incorrect? This doesn't sound right to me?

    Don't use 'moneys'. The plural is only found in special contexts like legal English.

    "It's time to cook some meats." <--correct?
    "It's time to cook some meat." <--incorrect?

    Use 'some meat'

    Some can be used with a plural and with an uncountable noun:
    some money (uncountable)

    some people (countable)
