I'd have to ask why but there is a simple solution.

Make a microprocessor adapter that plugs into the computer serial port (or parallel) and the buddy box plug on the radio. Your computer can then send the PPM train to your radio which will transmit.

It's all pretty simple really but flying a helicopter from a keyboard ???????????

Write a program for your PC to talk to your interface card via transmitter. Or better yet record your flight thought your computer, save loop the program and let the computer fly the helicopter by it self.

I would get yourself a copy of Realflight G2. All you have to do is plugin and go. SORTED

how do you make a microprocessor adapter? I have a couple of freeware sims but no lead.

It's a bit more complex than I suggested, but only because you want to go the other way. You need to know what protocol the sims need and write the software to suit. There are plenty of DIY adapters for FMS and the like on the like. Maybe try the FMS homepage for links.

The actual adapter doesn't contain much more than the microprocessor. The trick is in the software. It would read the PPM pulse train from the TXs buddy box and encode that in a serial signal. Again pretty simple and you can even program it in basic if you so desire (with some performance constaints).

There are plenty of examples on the net about how to get a MicroChip PIC or an Atmel micro to read the pulse lengths for servos.
