Create a trigger in an opportunity

When a person adds a new note to an opportunity can we have a trigger that comes up once they click save, so they HAVE to create a new task?

The only way you can really enforce this would be to create the task for them. If you gather all the data needed on the Opportunity to create the task, you can create the task with a Trigger, Process, etc.

D Naveen Rahul.

That is not correct Navee. You can create them with a Trigger on the Note object like this. It works fine.
trigger NoteTrigger on Note (before insert) {
    List<Task> tasksToInsert = new List<Task>();
    Task newTask;
    for(Note n : trigger.new){
        Schema.SObjectType entityType = n.ParentId.getSobjectType();        
        if(entityType == Opportunity.sObjectType){
            //Create Task
            newTask = new Task();
            newTask.WhatId = n.ParentId;
            newTask.Subject = 'New Task';
        if(tasksToInsert.size() > 0){
            insert tasksToInsert;
