What is the maximum number of queen a player can have in a game by one side?

I assume you mean the game of chess. The player starts out with one queen; the only way to get additional queens is to promote pawns - convert pawns into queens by taking them to the far end of the board (row 8 for white, row 1 for black). Since there are eight pawns that can be converted to queens, that makes a theoretical maximum of 9 queens, assuming standard chess rules are followed.

Do pawns in chess move forword or diangle?

Pawns in chess are unique from any other piece in that they move and attack in different directions. Pawns may move one or two spaces forward when on the 2nd or 7th rank (their starting positions for white and black respectively), and one space after that. They attack diagonally forward, either to the left or the right. This makes it possible to have multiple pawns on one file or vertical lines of squares. They cannot move backwards.
