I suggest for Player 1 use Keyboard and Mouse, and for Player 2 - Joystick.
Anyway, i suggest to make 2 same users in 1 PC, but in 1 screen so they both can play. And, it should (i think) to take tje Java memory to split in 2.

That would involve coding a whole new external program to work in conjunction with Minecraft. Say two mice are plugged in two separate USB ports, as well as two different keyboards, this imaginary program would assign controls to each set. For ex.

USB port 1 [Player 1 mouse]
USB port 2 [Player 1 keyboard]

USB port 3 [Player 2 mouse]
USB port 4 [Player 2 keyboard]

Now it would have to work in conjunction with this minecraft mod to assign USB port 3 and 4 to the bottom screen, and so that it wouldn't interfere with the top screen. I'm sure there's more to it than that.
Then again I'm not an expert programmer, so I'm not even sure if this would be compatible on any OS.

Can't you just open two instances of minecraft, join localhost, and resize the windows to make it look split-screen (Or just use 2 monitors)?

One player could use a gamepad, one could use mouse and keyboard.

I actually play most games on my computer (Skyrim, minecraft, Doom) with a Wiimote/wiimotion+ attachment.

It /IS/ possible to just plug in another mouse and keyboard, but you have to download some program I can't remember the name of to configure them. Something about the windows Hardware Abstraction Layer not supporting multiple independent mice and keyboards, so you have to use someodd program. Google could probably help you, I'd look but dialup is slowwww.

I don't know if this is against the rules, but I'll risk it anyway ;).

I have created a mod allowing you to run multiple instances of Minecraft and control them with the joypad. Here's the link: http://www.minecraft...ge__p__14813189

If you connect to the same server you effectively have a split screen.

This would work perfect:

All you need is an xbox controller and it will work just fine.
