Use the OnSetCursor function - which is the MFC function corresponding to
WM_SETCURSOR. Everytime the mouse is moved - like OnMouseMove - this function is
called. In this function, you can use the SetCursor() with the handle to the cursor you want.
A small example:

BOOL CMyWindow::OnSetCursor(CWnd* pWnd, UINT nHitTest, UINT message)
{
  // TODO: Add your message handler code here and/or call default
  POINT      here;

  GetCursorPos(&here);
  ScreenToClient(&here);

  if( IsCursorInTheRightBox(here) && nHitTest==HTCLIENT) {
    HCURSOR hCur=AfxGetApp()->LoadCursor(IDC_MYCURSOR);
    SetCursor(hCur);
    return TRUE;
  }

  return CWnd::OnSetCursor(pWnd, nHitTest, message);
}
I hope that helped :)
