A foul does not have to be near the ball. A foul must occur (1) by a player, (2) on the field of play, (3) against an opponent, and (4) while the ball is in play. If the foul you describe is by a defender, against an attacker, in the defender's penalty area then play is stopped and a penalty kick awarded. Depending on the severity, it could also be misconduct.

If it's done by a defender inside the defender's penalty area then a penalty kick would be awarded instead.

What is the half circles for on a soccer field?

You are probably referring to the penalty arc which is at the top to the penalty area. It is not exactly a half of a circle.Prior to the taking of a penalty kick all players except the kicker and the opposing goal keeper must be outside of the penalty area and at least 10 yards from the penalty mark. The penalty mark is only 8 yards from the edge of the penalty area! So an extra bit of distance is added to show the players where they must be.


Direct kick how does it happen?

A direct free kick is awarded when someone commits a penal foul: handling the ball, tripping or attempting to trip, striking or attempting to strike, kicking or attempting to kick, jumping at, charging, or pushing an opponent. The ball is placed at the spot of the foul, and a player on the offended team takes the kick. The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves. If a direct free kick is awarded within the kicking team's own goal area, the ball may be placed anywhere in the goal area for the kick (similar to positioning for a goal kick). If a direct free kick is awarded within the kicking team's own penalty area (including the goal area), the ball is not in play until it is kicked directly out of the area. If the direct free kick is awarded in the offending team's penalty area, a penalty kick is awarded instead.
