So i have a layer...i want to move it to the left. i drag on the position numbers and scroll left...my mouse hits the edge of the screen..so i have to move my mouse over to the right side of my mouse pad, then drag it left again..i have to do ythis multiple times...as where dragging it to the right I have a lot more room...I have seen some computers where the mouse goes off the edge of the screen and appears on the opposite side, allowing for infinite scrolling....How can I do this with my Mac?

I have't seen that before, but i would be useful...

you also have two other options. rather than dragging horizontally, you can drag vertically, which might give you more room to drag. but I will usually hold the shift key when dragging which causes the value to change by increments of 10 rather than 1 -- holding the command key will do increments of .1, if you ever need fine adjustment control.
