I’m interested in learning how to create bots or program hacks. Does anybody know any tutorials that can help me out or tell me the basics of how they work?

Just guessing here, but it's probably a matter of reverse engineering the information passed over the network, and creating an entirely new client for processing this information that does not involve user input.

In some less malicious cases, bots are mods.

Depends on the bot. Either way.. "hacks" that simulate user input still have to process either in-game memory or network traffic. If you have to ask a question like you're asking, you're probably a long way from being skilled enough to create such things.

I'd recommend learning how to program a game instead. It's substantially more rewarding.
