Would it be possible to make a mobile version of a website and make it an application to go in the App Store? How does that work?

I think you need to take a deep breath and start at the top of this forum. There's a lot of reading to do before you can even understand the questions you want to ask.

No, you cannot magically turn a webpage into an app. You could create an app that contains a webview to locally display your web pages, or display some pulled from a server.
But what would stop your users from just visiting the mobile site with Safari instead of buying your "app"? Nothing.
