A block below the waist is called a "cut block," and the rules regarding this can vary among different youth leagues, so it would be best to consult a rulebook or a league official.

At the high school level, cut blocking is allowed within the "free-blocking zone," defined as a rectangular area extending 4 yards laterally from the ball and 3 yards to either side of the line of scrimmage. Once the ball carrier has left the zone, the zone no longer exists.

A chop block, however, is never legal. This is when a player gets cut while already engaged by someone who is blocking high (above the knee).

In the US why dont they call football soccer and soccer football?

Probably because in the USA the single word 'football' is more commonly connected with 'American Football' rather than with "association football" - also known as 'soccer'. In those countries where another brand of football is much more popular than soccer, those more popular football games are what those regions call "football". There are many of them. 'Soccer' was originally a slang name for the game played in accordance with Rules set by The Football Association in England, where the game is sometimes still formally called 'Association Football', perhaps as a way of distinguishing it from other forms of football including American, Australian Rules, Gaelic and Rugby, to name a few.
