It is theoretically possible, but we will never distribute such a unit 
with the compiler because

a) almost nobody needs such a thing
b) mice come bundled with a mouse driver exactly so that not every one 
has to code the mouse hardware directly and so that the user can set 
movement speed etc preferences using the driver.

If you want to make such a thing, no problem. Other people may be 
interested in it of course, that's wy we have the contributed units 
section on our website to which it can be added once it's finished.

Not unless you translate it to Pascal and assembler.
