I'm having a hard time finding resources to figure out how to make a sprite render wherever my mouses x + y are
specifically that I'd like to implement a fancy animated cursor (a crosshair)
I have the mouse move events X + Y
but that, obviously, gives me the X+Y on the screen
I need to somehow, I guess, "ray cast" down from the mouse x+y? I guess?
To determine what point on my stage that translates to

did you see dragging examples?

http://pixijs.github.io/examples/#/projection/basic.js - that's one of best dragging examples, just click or move red squares

if you want to just ask "which element is under a point", you have to use "renderer.plugins.interaction.hitTest", look at its sources: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/blob/dev/src/interaction/InteractionManager.js#L657
