Forget the USB. USB has unpredictable latencies that make it a poor
choice for timing.
If you can't, or won't, use a soldering iron, you can pay someone to do
it for you. It's possible that someone could be persuaded to buy a case
at a time, add a DB-9 or DB-25 connector and 5V power supply and resell
them as "Plug-N-Play".
