Sure you can make your own paddle!

An online book from the Atari Archives, oddly, has some nice plans for various controllers on the Apple:

You can't use Atari joysticks and stuff directly; you need to convert the pinouts and signals. Chapter 9 of that book talks about it:

I don't have any suggestions for games for you. The ones I like are only of sentimental value, really.
