A folder shearch could be called a shortcut folder.

It isn't actually a folder, but could be called a folder that routes
you to the mails with the searched string.

Every time you open that folder, the search is done displaying new
mails matching the search if available.

How to move searched mails? The way you are doing it have done half
of the work.

Search it, save it as a search folder. Select all mails in the search
folder and move to the desired folder. You can do that by creating a
folder first, or creating it when using the move command from the
context menu.

Maybe a little tricky but you may consider that, unless you need
another folder in your OS structure, you have enough with the search
