    NOT A TEACHER.

    "Make a law" is acceptable, but usually a law is passed. There is also the expression "to lay down the law."

    I'm not sure I understand your second question. Do you wish to say "to place/make an order"?

    Jasmin is correct.

    I add simply that laws may be enacted. That is quite formal.
    Rules, suggestions etc may become law.
    Lay down the law means : tell somebody quite forcefully what (you think) they should or should not do.
