Default OTG support

Is there a way of giving any Android device OTG support even if it was not manufactured to support OTG.
I have a kobo arc and it does not support OTG, but I would like to be able to connect keyboards, mouses, flash drives etc to it, is there way hoping it does not involve custom roms as I have no idea what Roms would work with my tablet.

No, OTG has to be implemented by the manufacturer.

You can however use e.g. a bluetooth keyboard. I'm not sure about the mouse. A USB Stick is not possible. The way to go would be an SD card or cloud.

Which tablet do you have?
