Why when I move my hand faster to long distance and apply force I get more air but when I move my hand fast to shorter distance I barely get any air

The shorter the distance, the less air you move, because the volume passed by the hand is smaller.

And this is surprising, why exactly?

can we make wind during motion for example when I move my hands or it’s just wind disturbance and wind that is already there?

You can move air. Whether to call that ”wind” or not isn’t a physics question.
