Will just any usb keyboard and any usb mouse work with the PS3 browser?
Also are there any wireless keyboards and wireless mice that are not bluetooth work with the PS3 browser?

The store fully supports mouse input. Of course you don't get a cursor, but instead it works exactly like the XMB (ie. dragging left, right, up, or down moves the focus in that direction).

Just about any plug-and-play USB keyboard should work fine. This includes the wireless ones. (I know because I've used my logitech wireless mouse and generic wireless keyboard with my PS3)
