Simulating a spring-dashpot system sounds like exactly what you're looking for. Doing so with a tracked PPT light like you suggest should be easy to accomplish. You can no doubt google and find lots of examples and sample equations. You should watch out for instabilities and osciallations which will happen if you don't balance the spring and dashpot constants correctly.
