Hmmm...I'm not sure such a joystick/game pad exists. Most of the ones
I have owned and seen usually have a mixture of big and small buttons.
For example, the Philips 2909 I mainly use on my laptop has seven
programable buttons on top plus the start and menu button which are
fairly small. You can feel them but their not particularly large. On
the front of the unit though are four big buttons that are
programable, but are used for fire controls and things like that. As
this layout is pretty standard for PC joysticks now days I doubt you
would find a unit with all big buttons. Sorry, no can do as they say.
As for programming a joystick that all depends on the game. I know
Troopenum, for example, comes with a joystick utility that allows you
to asign actions to certain buttons. You can do it in Aliens in the
outback as well. So setting up a joystick is usually straight forward
if the game supports one and has its own joystick setup utility.
