I can't figure out how to re-map a button to act as a mouse click with an iPAC. Anyone able to help me ?

Don't think you can. It emulates a keyboard, not a mouse/keyboard combo.

So there is no way to use my trackball and a button to navigate the internet with MacMame ?

Not a button connected to an iPAC, anyway, unless you do some shifty stuff in software.

(e.g. enable mouse keys and map a button to keypad 5)

If you're savvy enough to wire an iPac, why don't you just hack a mouse? The switch buttons are typically very easy to solder on to. After soldering, just pull out the encoder wheels, mount the board inside your control panel, wire the leads to your buttons, and put the the USB cable on your hub. Boom, you're done.

(With some constructive routering, you could even mount a scroll wheel up to the top.)
