According to the System Requirements on the retail SL page 1GB is the minimum but I'm guessing it will be a dog with the little memory.
As for using a different mouse, maybe yes, and wired. Or at least have a wired backup mouse (which I recommend no matter what wireless mouse you use). The MM can be "moody" at times with various "behavioral problems" like losing connection, picky about which batteries you use, skipping and jerky tracking. It varies from user to user from no problems at all to any number of the problems I mentioned.

You can order Snow Leopard from either Apple or other online retailers.
Your 2006 1.83GHz Mac Mini supports 2GB of RAM.
OWC or Crucial are good sources for RAM upgrades.
Problem is that your model Mac Mini is not upgrade friendly and has to be opened up to up the RAM.
If your not able to do the RAM yourself, then it is best to contact your local Authorized Apple Service Provider and get an estimate to upgrade both the RAM and OS X.
Lastly most any USB Mouse will work, I use cheapo USB Logitech Mice that I found at walmart for $9.99 with my iMac and my Mac Mini.
