How do I make a balloon with the tail like the one bellow in Illustrator?

That shows you how to make tails. Wavy tails like that you add extra points with the pen tool when you make them, so that you can curve it in the middle. Basic Illustrator line making, just need to practice.

Yep, it's the same as making regular tails in AI, only with a few extra points / curves. Though sometimes I'll just freehand them with the pencil tool if they're supposed to be particularly weird.
