I have two sweatshirts I love, but the cuffs on them are falling apart. Is there a way to re-cuff them? LOL....sorry, I don't even know if that's the right word. Do they make cuffs for shirts like this, or would I have to make them myself?

Many notions departments carry replacement cuffs. You can also purchase cuff material in many fabric stores, especially stores that sell athletic and outerwear fabrics. Be prepared for having difficulty matching colours. You could probably find some on line as well. Try googling, 'replacing knit shirt cuffs'. Pay attention to the fabric content and the elasticity of either the fabric or replacement cuff.
