Noone is going to email an answer to you.  If you want the answer you are going to have to come back to this site and read the suggested remedies to your problem.  When you find one, you will then ACCEPT THE ANSWER... something you cannot do if the answer is emailed to you.

Somehow, though, I have a feeling we will never hear from you again anyway.

q1: you don't - you make the bat move left and right.

just draw the bat at the height you want with the x position of the mouse.

q2:

let x,y be your ball position
let dx,dy be your ball change vector (initially 1,1)

let sx,sy be the width and height of your game area

while true

x=x+dx
y=y+dy

// bounce off right side
if(x>=sx) dx=-dx

// has ball gone off bottom
if(y>=sy) end of game

// bounce off left side or top
if(x<1) dx=-dx
if(y<1) dy=-dy

// bounce off back
if x,y is touching top of bat dy=-dy

get user input
do game rules - collision etc
do game graphics
wend
