I see many members that have smiley faces at the end of their display name. How can we make those?

    Copy such character () and paste in your username.

    I don't know why people are voting to close, and now delete this, but it is very on-topic for Meta, and a reasonable support question. Jan 14, 2013 at 16:49

That's not a smiley face; it's a Korean character.

Stack Exchange allows for Unicode characters in user's display names. You can add various things like snowman and arrows if you feel so inclined. Wikipedia has a List of Unicode Characters, and you can try to draw something and see if there's a unicode character for it.
