when u design a footprint it is stored as a library..have u included this library in your capture to enable it to show.
attached doc will help you not just for footprint but overall in Orcad.

Have you tried hitting F1 and reading the help file?
They often have information on how to use the software, or the documentation that comes with it?

It sounds like you need to learn how to make components & parts etc in the software, starting with reading the help etc is a good start.
