I'm not sure, but in any case that is a rather rude thing to say, and probably wouldn't be appreciated by any Japanese person, regardless of how fluently you said it!

I really don't understand your question. する  is the plain form of the verb to do. To turn it into causitive (make N do something) you would use させる. However, the phrase you make me sick actually translates into something more akin to:

気持ち悪い
or
胸糞が悪くなる

Yes, but not in the example you posted.

いadj く+ する or なadj + にする will give you the meaning "make"

難しくする - make it harder
簡単にする - make it easy
赤くする - make it red
