Im trying to summon an arrow that will move forward like it was shot out of a bow, in the direction im facing in 1.16.1 minecraft. Anyone know how to do this?

The solution you will need probably will involve the editing of NBT tags to set the speed and direction.

NBT tags go in the {}s at the end of the /summon command:

/summon arrow ~ ~ ~ {NBT}

I'm afraid I can’t provide a full answer at this time, but you can consider looking at these Minecraft Wiki articles:
