I have create a 16×16 pixel favicon (favorites icon) for my site: articles-list.com (http://www.articles-list.com) in order to brand and increase it's prominence in visitor's bookmark menu.
However, I found that some favicon from other website is more creative & interesting:
1) The address bar contains a text next to the favicon.
2) a movable favicon icon
How to create a text next to the favicon?
How to create a movable favicon?

Can you post a screen capture of an example? I'm not sure what you mean.
1) The only text I have ever seen next to a fav icon is from a security notice that you are on a secure site. To get this, you just need to go through all of the setup for a secure site, like using https, getting a security certificate, etc. I'm not sure if the text is customizable or if that is a default by browser.
2) I have never seen a "movable" favicon. Where do you move it? Why? Or do you mean a "moving" picture? It may be possible to use an animated gif (or similar format) and convert it to a moving icon, but I don't know how.
I don't know much about either of these, though. You may be able to find something on google, but I'd first try to refine your search terms a bit, because those aren't very clear yet.
"favicon text" / "favicon text caption" and "animated favicon" would be good places to start.
However, it won't be entirely reliable because some browsers (for example, especially internet explorer) can take a very long time to reset the favicon (up to 72 hours in some cases). It should enhance the experience for many users, though.
