That link you provided is done in flash, that sort of support is not possible unless you go down that root.

You can use custom cursors but these don't work in most modern day browsers ...

You can use .cur and .ani file for your custom cursor like:
style{
cursor:url(cursorlocation.cur);
}

Try something like this:

<html>

<head>
<title>http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_26838482.html</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>

$(function() {

  $("#toggle").click( function() {
    $(this).toggleClass( "custom-cursor" );
    $("body").toggleClass( "custom-cursor" );
  });

});

</script>
</head>
<style type="text/css">
.custom-cursor {
  cursor:url("http://plugin.smileycentral.com/http%253A%252F%252Fplugin%252Esmileycentral%252Ecom%252Fassetserver%252Fcursor%252Ejhtml%253Fcur%253D1%2526i%253D8111a/image.gif") !important;
  color: #FFFFFF !important;

The problem is when you do a click, you click on the image, not the element behind the image.
So adding one pixel to the mouse position on both axes seems to allow we to click on the element behind.

(e.pageX+1)+"px","top":(e.pageY+1)
$("#cursor").css({"left":(e.pageX+1)+"px","top":(e.pageY+1)+"px"});
