If I cast prestidigitation the first bullet point says:

You create an instantaneous, harmless sensory effect, such as a shower of sparks, a puff of wind, faint musical notes, or an odd odor.

So, a harmless sensory effect, would include these: Touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. How far I can use visual sensory effects?

Can I conjure a small rain cloud above a creature's head?

Also what is the difference between this and illusions?

I need to know the limit, because the spell doesn't say the size of the effect, or its limits. Sight is a harmless sensory effect, so what the limit of the spell?

10 ft from the caster

Presditigitation has a listed range of 10 ft and it says you

create one of the following magical effects within range:

In its simplest readings, the effect is inside the range. Whether any specific effect is possible is entirely up to the DM (talk with them), but note that the sensory effect is instantaneous, so the rain cloud might not read properly to observers and for that (any many similar uses) you might be better off with minor illusion (or more potent illusion spells).
