If you want the servo to track the mouse, you need to understand how a mouse moves. Moving while on the table and moving while in the air are two different things. Moving slowly on the table means one thing. Moving quickly means something else. Just sending information that the movement is to the left or to the right (or up or down) is not going to be enough. You'll need to send how much the mouse moved. You'll need to deal with the fact that the mouse moves relative amounts, while the servo moves absolute amounts.

1. i do not know how to program anything.


Writing a PC application which captures mouse movements is not trivial. You might want to consider whether you're capable of achieving that before you invest too much effort on the Arduino side.
