It is USB.
I think it is, but I can't seem to find any guides on how to get USB track pads to work. Is it possible? Can you link me to any guide? Google search isn't helping too :/

Would require a custom driver.
I've heard that I2C kexts have some support for USB. You should read about it.

@RehabMan, can you tell me whether this guide will work with Mojave, I am currently using ApplePS2SmartTouchpad that identifies the trackpad but god its awful to use. Touches are sometimes registered twice, drag and drop is awful and additional gestures just doesn't work. If this guide does not apply to my laptop for Mojave, can you please guide me to the one that would be valid?

Regards

If you have an issue, you must describe it clearly and attach problem reporting files as per FAQ.
None attached.
Read FAQ:

The guide previously linked has a link to the current VoodooPS2Controller.kext build.

Hi Rehabman, why with ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext my trackpad get very high velocity and with VoodooPS2 not?
Is to much slow, if compare with SmartTouchPad, in 2 fingers scrolling to navigate on web.
Its very nice to be use Voodoo because my keyboard was complete with your kext!!
Lenovo Thinkpad E470 with 10.14.3
Would be fix to me, please?
