This can be done easily using Applescript. If you use the Extra  
Suites.sdef you will see dictionary commands for ES click mouse, ES  
move mouse, ES select menu item, ES type key, ES type string, ES mouse  
location, ES keys down.

There is only a limited ability to do this in VBScript, however. But  
it is straight forward in Applescript.
