PS2 Development has quite the "homebrew" scene if you know where to look. This is likely due to the insane success of the console back in it's more nimble years. I found a site that seems to take you through the basics of setting up your development environment, loading textures, 2d animation, etc. 


A word of caution, console development, especially, early console development, is usually quite low-level. It's not uncommon for C to be the primary language, and to be inter-mixed with assembly (Not sure for the PS2). While already knowing a programming language will most certainly help, Javascript won't be the language you'll be leveraging on the platform. 

However, I'm a firm believer that if you truly want to do something, difficulty can be a cliff note to a foregone conclusion, and in such case, Good Luck!
