You can get the parts out of old broken mouses or new ones. Otherwise you have to make them from scratch. That would include writing a program and burning it on a chip, and USB is a lot more complicated to program than ps/2. (Chip is already programmed in all sold mice.) For wireless, infrared is much easier than radio from scratch. Putting the ball on top is simply building an upside down mouse.
