Is it possible to use a wireless mouse for a laptop, and if so, how would you go about doing it?
You will need to purchase either a wireless mouse with a USB receiver, or a bluetooth capable mouse if your laptop is so equipped.
Either situation should be pretty much plug-and play.
Yes, it's perfectly possible.
You just need to plug the receiver into one of the laptop's USB ports.
If your laptop has built in Bluetooth support you can get a mouse which won't need an external receiver.
