It sounds like you want the guitar to sit exactly on top of,and track, your voice. While this does have its uses (i.e: George Benson) it is more usual
to leave space between the guitar and voice so that they may work separately.
If you are playing the guitar right over the range of your voice, it may be because you are not confident about your tone and are trying to mask it. I
would suggest that you start trying to sing unaccompanied, somewhere reverberant, where you can play with your voice and get some confidence.
Remember that it more about the feeling than technical perfection. Someone's voice that breaks and looses tone or pitch just when a song becomes most
emotional is considered good because of the emotional power of the loss of control at that point.
Also, as someone suggested previously, if the pitch goes out as you move up the neck, you probably need to "harmonically tune" the stings to the
fretboard. Most guitars have movable bridge pieces to sort that out but you can also shim the neck (if it is detachable, like on an electric) to get a
truer registration. Most luthiers can get you sorted quickly if you aren't confident in doing it yourself.
Another thing that helps when 'capoing' up the neck is to use heavier gauge strings but that can also cause other issues.
I'd suggest find and befriend a good luthier!
