Many things. Particle accelerators, Rail Guns, motors, generators and MAGLEV trains.

Particle accelerators cause particles to crash together at huge speeds. The artificial transmutation of elements can be achieved within a particle accelerator changing one element to another.

No, they move slower than the speed of light. In particle accelerators, they can get fairly close to the speed of light, but not quite reach it.No, they move slower than the speed of light.

Sort of. Particle accelerators are anything that take particles (usually electrons or protons) and accelerate them to high speeds. Super colliders are really powerful particle accelerators along with a bunch of equipment to measure what happens when the particles collide. So when someone talks about a particle accelerator, they're usually talking about colliders. But there are lots of things that are particle accelerators that aren't colliders. The old CRT computer monitors (heavy ones that are about as deep as they are wide) accelerate electrons and shoot them into the glass plate in front to make light, so there's a particle accelerator inside.
