I have not checked Bluetooth yet. As there are no USB-A connectors,
I am playing with the idea of getting a Bluetooth mouse. I've not
used them before.

I tried one, an Amazon basics model, cheap. Worked instantly (on
Windows). Then I removed it, I need it for a broken Android tablet,
where it worked after some convincing.

The only issue is that you may need a working mouse to get the BT
mouse working :-)

I have a Logitech bluetooth keyboard that I use with my Amazon Fire, and
also with an iPad. It just works. So I'd be hopeful a bluetooth mouse
would work without difficulty.

I second that. Get yourself a Logitech wireless mouse with the Logitech
Unified Receiver - plug the receiver into the USB port and it will just work.
You can pair additional Logitech devices (keyboards, mice) with the same
receiver but this requires the Windows-based Logitech software.

Yes, you CAN do that in Virtualbox - but you'll have to connect the USB
Logitech Receiver to the guest rather than the host (through the Virtualbox
Devices menu). Once you've paired the additional devices, disconnect the
receiver from the guest (again, via Devices -> USB) and it will automatically
reconnect to the host.

Or, of course, you can use a Windows desktop/laptop/tablet to do the same
