    Are you proposing to use the Picaxe in place of the keyboard encoder? Do you know how the keyboard interfaces with the computer?

    No, you need USB that emulates a HID (keyboard / mouse)

    You asked if it could be done with a PICAxe, the answer is no. It can be done with some AVR chips doing USB emulation in software or a PIC with USB HW.
