Not exactly sure I follow you - but if you're asking if you can connect a PS/2 port mouse or keyboard to a USB connector on your computer, the answer is 'No'.
You can do the opposite with an adaptor tho - plug a usb mouse or keyboard into a PS/2 (bus) port...

Hope that helps.

USB isn't designed for peer-to-peer connections, but for host-to-device connections.  I know the XBox has an ethernet connection that allows it to connect to a network, so maybe the PS2 has something similar.

wait, you can connect your Playstation2 to PC for saving  your memory files. I've seen the product at store that does that, I think its EBgames store. I'll check the website to see if they carry it. BRB
