Is there a way that someone can create a seed? Where have these new seeds been coming from and how are they being created?

You type it in the box in more world options when making a new level.

I understand that but is there a way for me to make a seed that when typed in, opens up my own custom world?

Nope seeds are pre-generated in code.

You have to do what everyone else has done.  DISCOVER a seed that generates a world that has features that appeal to you.  Whether that is unusual terrain, certain biomes, number or size or closeness of villages, treasure to loot, caves, ravines, or anything else that tickles your fancy.
Any text you type into the seed entry box will produce a unique world unless you type a "0" (zero). That and not entering anything will cause the MineCraft world generator to make a, for all practical purposes, random seed.
All seeds, as used by the world generator, are numbers, not text.
You can find out what number was used to generate the world you are currently in  by typing the command "/seed" and MC will respond with the NUMERIC seed that was used.

Numeric seeds can be any integer from  -9223372036854775808 to 9223372036854775807 which is a total of 18446744073709551616 different worlds. Multiply that by 3 to allow for default, large biome, and super flat worlds.  Note: those numbers are 19 digits long, not counting the minus sign. (20 for the total, for you nit pickers)
If you type ANYTHING into the seed box other than -,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, or 9 (that means no unwanted/unseen spaces also) MineCraft will use the Java hashcode() routine to turn your text into a integer between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647 which the world generator will then use.
So, your choices are:
1. Type in nothing (or 0) and get a random world.
2. Type in a 19 digit number with or without a leading minus sign.
3. Type in any 32 character text that is easy to remember, or not, your choice.

In all cases, you can see the numeric seed that was used by using the /seed command.  Entering that revealed number at a later date to generate a new world should give you an identical world to the current one.

Please note that the /seed command is disabled for users of multi-player server worlds to prevent users from cheating.
