I want to teach chess, not learn chess. I can't do on chess.com or there is a feature that I can do it?

You are rated 800, you don't have anything to teach. When Levy Rozman says that lower rated players earn a lot of money in New York teaching chess he means 1500 rated players, not 800 rated players.

In the Chicago area 1500 rated players and even 800 rated players can make money teaching but only if they are doing in-person multi-student classrooms, are paired with stronger teachers (they handle the basics while others handle to more complex ideas) and they actually know how to teach kids.  Teaching on-line without a stronger associate and without knowing how to teach kids is not something that an 800 rated player can consistently make money at.

Teaching chess is a skill, like any other. I know an IM who, in his prime, was quite a force to be reckoned with. But he can't teach for anything. A barely 2200 player I also know is one of the best coaches I've come across. Lots of successful former students.

It seems that, in this way, you are not going to find those who want to learn from you.
It may be better for you to teach chess in person or online, but someone who needs it, appreciates it and can learn something from what you have to teach.

To teach chess, FIDE should see me as an E (Engine).

FIDE does not authorize engines as trainers.

You can get a Developmental Instructor title by FIDE- the requirements are just attaining a TRG. You will be cerfitied to teach just beginners and schoolboys, and be annoyed when you realize that the schoolboy knows more than you do.

If you wonder why FIDE has such a lame trainer title available, the answer is simple: Money collected as licensing fee by nuts like you.
