If interactions with the Higgs field make something have more mass, and if movement creates interactions with the field, then wouldn't something at absolute zero have no weight (zero speed, so no interaction with the Higgs field)?

First, interactions w/ the Higgs fields don't make things have "more" mass, it makes them have mass. Period.

Second, there is no such thing as "zero speed". That assumes a preferred frame of reference and there is no such beast.
