I have 9mm. Shield and I have seen Ad's that the .380 mm is easy to pull the slide. Can my gun be made to easily pull the slide?
The tension of the slide tends to correlate with the caliber of the firearm. A more powerful round usually needs a heavier spring to absorb the recoil to prevent damage to the moving parts. It also needs enough force on the return cycle to strip a new round from the magazine. Higher magazine capacity means higher spring tension on the rounds within it; leading to the need for an appropriate return force. Everything about the firearm you change can lead to a failure if not properly engineered. With all that said the unfortunate reality is under most circumstances you can not lighten the 9mm Parabellum to the same slide pull weight of a .380 which is actually a 9mm Kurtz (short) in Europe.
