D is a central division algebra over F. We know that we can always find a maximal subfield K inside D such that K/F is separable. I want to know can we always make it Galois?

I believe you are just asking if every central division algebra over F is a crossed product. This is not true, and the first example was given in: Amitsur, S. A. "On central division algebras." Israel J. Math. 12 (1972), 408420. MR 318216 DOI: 10.1007/BF02764632 A survey of Amitsur's contributions on division algebras which mentions this point in particular is the introduction by Saltman starting on page 109 of: Amitsur, S. A. Selected papers of S. A. Amitsur with commentary. Part 2. Edited by Avinoam Mann, Amitai Regev, Louis Rowen, David J. Saltman and Lance W. Small.
