I don't know of one off the top of my head, but I bet it's about as simple as painting an Xbox controller. Just unscrew it, take out the insides, paint, put it back together. I put an LED in my Xbox controller, it was very simple to take apart. Hopefully PS2's are the same way.

The process he described is simply a relatively standard way you go about painting plastics, so yes it should work just fine.

As for keeping the letters on the pad.. either screen them off with something, as suggested. Or you could make yourself a stencil (this might be fiddly, but then screening letters so small would be fiddly as well) of the letters and then spray them on after then main colour (before the clearcoat). This would mean you could do them in any colour you wanted as well.

What ever you do clear coat it a couple of times.

Clear coat will make like a shield over your paint, airbrusing involves a lot of masking and multiple coats not always over everything meaning there's diffrent hights in the paint that you can almost feel, with clearcoats everything becomes smooth and even ;)
