These are both very complicated projects and not just "the basics."  It will require some money to put together (bulbs for projectors can easily run well above $100).  Most importantly however, the results are not likely to be very good.  The screen on the DS is very small, and it's resolution is 256 x 192.  If you turn this screen into a projector to blow it up, the image quality will be really, really bad.  The resolution of the DS's touch screen is going to have about the same (if not exactly the same) resolution as the screen, so for that same reason, it will not be an effective mouse.  You would not have the sensitivity required to do much of anything.

Bottom line, yes, these projects are possible, but no, you shouldn't attempt them.  You'll only end up with a bunch of DS pieces.  And please, please, please learn how to put together a sentence.

don't be stifled by naysayers. even if it doesn't work very well, you'll learn a whole lot in the process. these types of experimentation are what leads on to the really great ideas. admittedly, you do write like a foreigner, and in the future, I'm sure you'll discover a more professional post will attract more useful and intelligent replies.
sorry to dog on the post

Google "Homemade Projector" I have seen heaps even some companies sell full packages. (Saw a really cool one installed in a restored and pimmed up old-school pram, look awesome). Their are quite a few video's and instructions floating around online help you. This is possibly not the best site for such a discussion. Try some of the electronics forums.
