I would like to create a permanent link for all files in a specific directory (which is synced with the cloud) to my Desktop. The Desktop should then show all files within the synced cloud folder. Is this possible with normal hardlinks?

Something like this:

ln ~/OneDrive/Cloud-Desktop/* ~/Desktop/

would just create hard links for every file which is currently in the folder while this without the * would link to the whole folder. I guess the easiest way would be to change the Desktop path right?
