I'm doing that right now. One is a USB mouse and one is a PS/2 mouse. The PS/2 mouse is a backup for when the USB craps out on the PC sometimes (old mobo).

On some games like Arma 2 you can make an ghetto steering wheel with a second optical mouse you can use to control steering for vehicles. The other mouse is the main mouse for everything else. (pic related)

You can have two pointers quite easily: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Multi-pointer_X
However, it doesn't really do much in most applications except letting each mouse's pointer move independently. For clicks and mouseover, most programs just recognize the most recently active pointer.
