A. only if they would be expecting to financially gain -would be is not correct tense.
B. if they would expect only to gain financially -meaning issue
C. only if their expectations can be gained financially -meaning issue
D. if financial gain could only be expected by them -meaning issue

A. only if they would be expecting to financially gain --> use of "would/could" is wrong in "if"-statement
B. if they would expect only to gain financially --> same as A
C. only if their expectations can be gained financially --> indirect/passive voice; E is better
D. if financial gain could only be expected by them--> same as A
E. only if they can expect to gain financially --> correct

My reply is not specific to this question, but can can be used to discuss the "possibility" of something.

He can sing well. ← This is the "capability" meaning. "He is capable of singing well."
They will show him how he can get a good score. ← This can does not indicate his "capability".
