Yes and no.

To think of Python in this context is a healthy instinct.

The whole category of "mimic user interaction" is deeply
problematic, though.  The simple-minded Python-oriented answer
to give is, "use Pamie or Watsup".  You might do best, though,
to start by reading <URL: >.

To pursue this further, we'd need to explore what exactly
"Java" and "C++" mean in your situation.
