If the defender moved his feet while trying to pick the ball up, wouldn't he be called for traveling since he is the only one with his hands on the ball, or would you have to wait for someone else to reach in so you could call a held ball?

The fact that the player is intentionally holding the ball with his/her legs is the reason for the kick ball call, the need actually use your feet is irrelevent, as the kick ball rule includes the entire leg
