Yes, cmd-x is cut.
I'm not sure if it works however on folders and files. It's good for just text, images, etc.
Keep in mind also that the posters are typing Cmd for the 'modifier' key, not Ctrl. The 'Cmd' or Command key is the one that has either:
An Apple Symbol
The word "Command"
The Swedish sign for a place worth visiting (http://buschmeier.org/bh/stockholm/images/20051203_Sevaerdhet.png)
It doesn't work on folders and files. I got so frustrated with it that I went back to using the command line interface, that is for file management which involved moving files from one location to the other.
Mac OS isn't Microsoft Windows so it's best to adopt the Mac ways. Learn to use "drag and drop" which is implemented much better in Mac OS than Microsoft Windows. Folders spring open which helps navigating to the destination, however you can also drag to the desktop and then drag from the desktop to the destination. If you are moving a group of files, they will stay grouped on the desktop and don't have to be reselected.
there is no buttons in finder to copy, cut & paste! I can not find them ! where they are ?
You can find them in the "edit" menu in Finder. OS X doesn't allow you to "Cut & Paste" files, however, so the Cut option may be greyed out.
If you want to move files, best way is to drag them or CMD+drag them to move to another drive
