"Federal" laws in the US are those laws proposed and passed by the US House and Senate and signed by the President - or if he vetoes them, passed over his veto. Paragraph 2 of Section 7 in the US Constitution states:

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

With that said, sometimes the US Federal Government will create agencies that create rules and regulations and empower those agencies to enforce their rules and regulations. In that way, their rules and regulations gain the force of being Federal Laws.

It depends upon the country. In the US it is the US Congress. In many countries it is Parliament, or some other legislative body. In a Dictatorship, the leader makes the laws.
