Is there a way to program a robot with python (ex, an electric motor, control it's speed, etc)

First you'll need a computer interface to your robot. Lego Mindstorm,
for example, comes with ways to program the onboard CPU. Other
standard robotic toolkits will also come with some kind of interface,
which may or may not have Python bindings.
