How can I use for loop for assigning variable names and shorten this code thank you.

what's wrong with using matrices? Something like
acc = data(:,2:6);
pot = data(:,8:16);
acc0 = detrend(acc);
and so on?
Of course you need to use vectorized functions.
For instance, both detrend and cumtrapz are already vectorized (by default along columns).
vel = cumtrapz(acc)*dt;
vel0 = cumtrapz(acc0)*dt;
In this case each column of vel and vel0 holds your old vel1...vel5 and vel01...vel05, respectively.
Your code is significantly shortened, without the need of defining variable names, which is a bad practice, as explained in the answer referenced by the cyclist.

You probably want to use cell arrays.
This prior question/answer discusses the dynamic assignment of variable names.
