Is there any way I can set up a turbo button on a normal keyboard?

The word you’re looking for is “macro”. Some keyboards (mainly those sold as gaming keyboards) are able to do this at a hardware level but there are programs that will let you do it on any keyboard for example AutoHotKey

I just downloaded a program called ControllerMate. I don’t know if it works on Windows. You can ether use it with a game controller, or your keyboard, as I understand it. It lets you do what you want and more. i used it to turn my joystick into a functioning mouse.
