This is probably a question best answered by those of you who are familiar with sliders in The Sims 3. I really would like to know, are custom sliders in The Sims 2 possible, and if so, why haven't we made any yet? I'd really like to get into making them for Sims 2.

I don't think so... In TS2 the "bodybuilder-large" are made by custom meshes or, like preg, with morphs. An, i think, the sliders of CAS and BodyShop aren't made according to the joints skeletons that we already know.
BTW, wait someone who knows the game coding.
It's alright to make mistakes you're only human. Inside everybody's hiding something. Take time to catch your breath and choose your moment. Don't slide.

The only meshes that are adjustable by slider are the pet bodies. If there's any possibility of applying slider tech to human-Sim bodies, I would assume the secrets would be found in studying the pets. But there always seems to have been a curious lack of interest in studying and/or modding the pets, outside of a scant handful of custom 'wing' accessories and the like. Shame, really.
ETA: I'm wrong, obviously, the face meshes also use sliders.
I am told by JMP, however, that many aspects of TS2 are more difficult (if not impossible) to modify than their TS3 counterparts because changing them would require access to the game's source code, which has never been released or leaked. That's probably the biggest stumbling block for this sort of thing.
