how do you make about 100 holes of 0.4mm diameter in metal fast to create metal mesh? what equipment can help me?

100 holes? Just use an electric hand drill and patience. It should take less than an hour.
At 5 holes/minute that's 20 minutes unless it's thick metal.
You could just buy screen at a hardware store.

Is there a reason you wouldn't just buy the part off Amazon or something? Look for "speaker grill". https://www.onlinemetals.com/en/buy/aluminum/0-063...
If it's thin metal, like foil, could you just punch holes with a nail? Does it have to be really nice?
If you need a precision, arbitrary pattern, google "solder stencil". There are tons of places that will make any pattern you want.
If the metal is thick, then you might take it to a metal fab shop, and ask them to put it on their CNC machine. Or if you have a friend that works in a place with such a machine, maybe the friend could just do it for you as a favor.

Chemical etching through a mask. Find a shop to do it for you. The equipment is very expensive.

100 holes is hardly worth an automated or exotic machine. Just use an cross measure, punch (to keep drill bit from seeking), drill or a drill press.
If this is production, that's different. A CNC, water cutter, laser cutter, etc can all do it. Or just outsource and get it really cheap.

To do just a few a laser cutting machine is the best choice.
For high production runs a hydraulic stamping machine may also be cost effective

LASER CUTTING TOOL IS THE FAST WAY TO DO THIS TASK.
