bell's inequalities says that:

- no physical theory of local hidden variables can reproduce all of the predictions of quantum mechanics

or in other words

- the correlations in/during Quantum Entanglement (QE) are stronger than could be explained by local hidden variables


even Bell's inequalities are not totally conclusive

is there any other experiment/observation/theoretical-mathematical deduction that would show/prove, or even hint, the existence of QE?

Sure! Entangled photons can beat the diffraction limit!

ok....cool link.

is there a way to reduce the wavelength of a photon other than by entanglement?

Well said!

Entanglement is used as a tool to demonstrate the above statement as being true. There are other techniques, separate from the usual Bell tests, as well. I might recommend you check out these subjects which are closely related (Wiki has articles on these too):
