If I understand your question you are asking how to add button input to your games. You can have button input
by using the pico 8 functions btn() or btnp(), btn() checks if a button's pressed and btnp() checks if a button's pressed for one frame.

In the btn() and btnp() functions you put 0 for left key, 1 for right key, 2 for up key, 3 for down key, 4 for z key, and 5 for x key

Code example:

if btn(5) then
print("Button x is pressed! Yay!")

Hope this answered your question if it didn't here's the pico 8 cheat sheet which will tell you much more about pico 8
