How do people create portableapps?

What programming language or procedure is involved in creating a portableapp?

Do they download the source code and rewrite it?

Almost any programming

Almost any programming language you like is good. People here use mostly NSIS, but I know of people using AutoIt and C++ too.
Rewriting source code is not a good option as handling updates would be complicated, therefore the usual way is creating a launcher that's often simply a silent installer + uninstaller. In some cases it just launches the app with a parameter that tells it where are it's settings, if app allows such.
