are their any chatbots that make up their own questions from their own database?
what i mean is they find out what they do not know from their database then ask a question about that.

I don't think any bot will decide what question to ask, without it being explicitly coded.

The closest I have to that is if Kuki is stuck for something to say, she will go through what she knows about the user and if she doesn't know something about them, she will ask questions like, "What is your job?", "Who is your best friend?", "Do you have any pets?" etc

the chatbot would have this in it's database

a cat is a animal.
a dog is a animal.
spaghetti is a food.
pudding is a food.

then the chatbot could make up the questions is a cat a food?
is a dog a food?
because food would be assigned as a category.
if it asked itself a question and it could answer it.
the chatbot would not ask that question.
because it would detect it's own default saying.

does acuitas learn the answer to questions if you say yes or no to a question?
example
acuitas = is a dog a food
me = no
acuitas = i understand a dog is not food

acuitas = is a cat an animal
me = yes
acuitas = i undertand a cat is a animal now.

Yes. He can detect (some) valid responses to his questions and learn the answer.

For a while I had my program ask straight questions about facts from its database that it was uncertain of, not unlike your description. This mainly led to random questions like "Can dogs breathe?". If one answered the question it would update its database and not ask a second time, but as they say in my country, one fool can ask more questions than a thousand scholars can answer. Its ignorance was limitless and it hindered conversation more than improved it, so I dropped this line of questioning. The questions would need much more direction to make them relevant.

the chatbots could try to guess the answer to the question it makes up sometimes.
then the user could say yes or no.
then the chatbot could learn like that.
that would be funny i think.

Oh chatbots can do that. A classic example I use is if someone asks, "Can you eat a tree?". I haven't hardcoded a response to that but Kuki can look up the properties of a tree, find it's made from wood, realise that you can't eat wood and reply, "no".

an easy way to utilize this is to assign the synonyms to its chat patterns,  but u may as well just as tell them it all at the beginning,  gets the job done easier.  But I guess maybe theres something more interesting to do!  dont know tho. :)

this is about getting a chatbot to think for itself.
once a chatbot learns more categories it could make up more questions.
having the chatbot ask questions about the categories as well. may make it more interesting.

If it doesnt go into some kind of fixed framework, I dont think its possible.   But it could still be fun.
