Yes, it is possible. I don't remember the tools I used to use to do it, however. xcursorgen was one. I also had a plugin for GIMP that would edit X (ubuntu) cursors, so I could export the images. And if you Google for something like 'free make Windows cursors' you will get a bajillion results, many/most of which will run in Wine. So no solution from me, but some suggestions anyway. :) – zpletan Feb 1 '11 at 17:52

Gursor Maker allows to edit cursors for X and allows to import themes made for Stardock CursorXP
