You don't change the cursor, you hide it, then code an object to continually update its position to the current cursor position.
okay so how would i set up the code to make an object constantly update on to the cursor?
You are literally asking us to do your homework for you.
Do they not teach programming in this programming class?

Even without Googling tutorials, there are basically four things you need to know to replace the cursor.
1. How to get the cursor position.
2. How to set a movieclip's position.
3. How to run code at regular intervals.
4. How to hide the system cursor.
If you're coding a game where something chases the mouse cursor, you already know 1, 2, and 3. In fact the only difference between your custom cursor and the thing chasing the cursor is that the thing just chases more slowly.
