    Nope. You would need a programmer, and then hope the chip isn't write protected or factory-sealed at the existing firmware (and such chips usually are). Microcontrollers used for Wii modchips are around $2. Leave the poor mouse alone.

    You could ask around on the Chiip development forum, see what chip you need, what software to use, etc. etc.

    You'll find the tutorial on the chip manufacturers' web site, and the programming help comes with the development software. Once you know what chip you're going to use, you can look for specific help. Everything (developing software, programming language, extra hardware you might need, everything) depends on what chip you'll use.
