PS/2 refers to the connector, small round plugs.
Usually purple for the keyboard and green for the mouse.

Serial is another type of connector, used for modems, very old
mice, etc. If your PC is less than 15 years old, it is unlikely
to have a serial-mouse.

HID stands for 'Human Interface Device' and is used for almost
anything between you and your PC. Keyboard, Mouse, touchpad,
drawing pen, etc.
