Planck Length

    Is it appropriate, if I defined Planck Length as the smallest distance possible for a matter to travel?

    No. The PL is a combination of units, but not an absolute minimum, except in some highly speculatiove theories.

    Planck's constant, Newton's gravitational constant, and the speed of light.

    See this wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_length.
