Can 'pak' be used here? (pakken) I hear it a lot when people say they kick something

No, pakken here would translate to to take.

When can I use 'pakken' then? Is it just for kicking people or something?

"Pakken" has nothing to do with kicking. Maybe you got confused by the metaphoric use of "pakken" for beating an opponent in sports or for taking revenge.
