Is there any emulator that allows to treat all non-PS/2 mouse activities as if I had one? I.e. if I have a usb mouse but it could be reached by interacting with PS/2 port.

To what end would you want this? An answer to that question might be helpful when trying to find a solution that fits your problem. – BloodPhilia Sep 23 '10 at 13:55

/dev/input/mice is a multiplex device that receives all events from all mice, PS/2 or otherwise.

Maybe a virtual machine of some sort would help?

Windows does this for you, so I am not sure what you are getting at. If you need a hardware solution, you might try a simple PS/2 to USB adapter. It doesn't actually adapt the signals... just the plug. Most mice (Microsoft mice in particular) support the PS/2 protocol natively and automatically switch to it when attached to a PS/2 host.
