Anything is possible with the Xpadder program, also you can use the analog sticks to control the mouse in windows too

You'll need software like JoyToKey, which will act as a mouse and you can set actions like middle, left, right click, space bar, enter, alt, F4, tab, etc.
The bad part is that this may create conflicts when launching a game (never tried a game with 360 controller while JTK on, doubt i'll work).

I think I remember a video from Linus Tech Tips about a remote control for pcs that included a keyboard (not sure about mouse interface). That + xBox controller and that should be good to never get of the couch.
