Are electrons so much more densely charged because they move faster?

Photons do not create EM force, they are the EM force as it were, when negative charged particles approach each other they exchange photons, therefore giving each accelerating each other away from one another.

And finally Yes charged particles can emit photons when stationary.

I am surprised about how one resting charged particle emit photons.

Could you give some tips to understand this state?

If however you are looking at a stationary charge and a charge (both of the same, positive say) that is moving towards the stationary object, it was easier for me to think about it in terms of fields(force fields as it were).

When the moving charge enters the field of the stationary charge, it causes a disturbance in this field, propagating as a photon which passes energy to the stationary charge.

And vice versa between the particles until both charges are out of range of the others field, the stationary charge is no longer stationary but has taken energy from the moving charge which is now moving at a slower rate on a different course.

Hope this helps :D

I see. The fact that the resting charged particle can emit photon depend on the existence of the other moving particle. Could I understand your statement like this?

in a system of just those two particles, that is a way of understanding it yeah

Ahem..

It's one of those facts of nature :)

Yep.
