Is it possible to use an Arduino Micro Pro with FTDI breakout board as a USB HID Keyboard, mouse, or joystick? I know that the Arduino micro is a better choice for this most of the time, but humor me.

For reference I am talking about these parts in particular

Unfortunately not.
The break out board uses a FTDI FT232RL chip, which will only show up as a Serial port.

You can use the pro-mini  it self, without extra board,  if you google Arduino VUSB.
It may require quite a lot of time to figure out how to get it to function properly though...

There is a technology named V-USB that will work with Pro Mini, UNO, Nano, and other 328-P AVR uC's.  The Arduino library is USBkeyboard.h and the implementation is HID keyboard.  The FTDI is not trequired, but as with the Nano and UNO, will do no harm.
