There is no penalty if the ball doesn't move, but that seems highly unlikely. If the ball does move you should replace the ball and receive a one stroke penalty.

Why use putting in golf?

It is very unusual to be able to get the ball into the hole from off the green. Typically, also, once you are on the green, you need more precision of direction than you can get with a fairway iron. So you would use a putter, which rolls the ball rather than lofting it, for the directional precision you need to actually hole out.
