You have to buy a small moon and atmosphere..lol jk

There is a type of powerhead named a "wavemaker." maybe you should look into that!

Im not really sure why you would though..seems like alot of flow! It would be really cool though

Well maybe if you bought several strong powerheads, and hooked them up near the top, and to a timer so that they turned and off in several seconds?

It all depends what you want. That wont really make a wave then, but it will be a short strong current/water movement

As far as I know, the only way to make a real wave is to use a pair of Vortech's.
