Playstation 2 Joystick (totally removed) connecting to Arduino UNO board...etc.?

Hello all...
Been working on this for a while now.  I purchased a generic playstation 2 (ps2) gaming pad, hand or controller (your preference).  I completely removed BOTH the joysticks from the unit as the native state of how they were, would not work for the project.  I DO NOT want wireless, and that first off is all I am finding online.
My question is this: WHERE do I connect the SEL (My understanding is this is where the pushbutton operation of the joystick would be wired)
Do I connect the SEL of the breakout board to the actual Arduino, or do I connect it to the breadboard.   To both, just give me a location as in 3 thru 13, A0 through A5,
Now then, I have power, ground, left (left3), right (right3) figured out.
Am I totally off my mark, I have attached my fritzing diagram as a jpg with notes to assist.

For reference purposes please see these links for further info:

Thanks  in advance

That's the problem (novice boy here) I don't know what would work and what wouldn't. Jumping feet first into this.
I think what I will do is just get their bob-09110 and continue on from there.
I thought this would a tad bit easier, but finding out that it's not.
no worries :) jumping in feet first can backfire sometimes... dont get discouraged...

First understand how a button works

then check here for how to read from the button

I was a novice once too, still kinda am :-P so feel free to ask any questions without worrying about them being dumb :)
connect it where ever you want :) Its just going to be another "button" input, take a look at the example code from sparkfun's joystick shield kit
