I have never seen them, the PS-2 ports were controlled by the keyboard
controller chip, if I remember correctly, so I would think it would be
hard to make a add-in card since it would have to take over some of the
functions of the keyboard controller. I have seen plans on the net that
convert PS/2 to serial using a PIC chip ... you could try google for one
of them.

I could use a USB => PS/2 mouse adapter, so far I have not found any
such animal. I've found plenty that go the other way.
