Hello guy,
since the POS cannot program unless you have the license, I would like to create one through arduino.

Can I connect the arduino to the internet, a keyboard and a barcode reader?

Yes.

a keyboard
With some additional hardware, and a fair amount of luck, yes.

Depends on the scanner. Some are easy; some are decidedly not.

I guess you would not like to connect your POS to the internet except you are an expert in firewalling. I also guess a POS system is better done using a standard PC than with an Arduino. You might use the Arduino to handle the cash register drawer or driving the customers price display but I would use a standard PC for the POS.
