If a defender, one not the goal keeper, deliberately handles the ball within their own penalty area then the restart is a penalty kick for the opposing team.

It must be, in the opinion of the referee, deliberate.

What is the penalty for touching the ball in soccer?

What I think you meant is, "what is the penalty for deliberately handling the ball?" If it is deemed to not be deliberate, then there is no offense. If a player deliberately handles the ball the other team is awarded a direct free kick at the location of the infraction. If it's done by a defender inside the defender's penalty area then a penalty kick would be awarded instead.

What happens if a soccer ball touches a player's hands?

If it's not the goalkeeper and outside the area, and the referee thinks it's deliberate, then it's a free kick to the opposition. If it's not the goalie and inside the area, and deliberate, then it's a penalty. If the goalie handles outside the area, then it's a free kick - this is most likely to result in a sending off as well.
