Yes, AutoHotkey works with arrows, both as hotkeys and as characters to be sent.
Unfortunately, your request is too vague to answer with a script.

Since you haven't seen them, I am providing links to the 2 tutorials that are available.
Please work through at least the first to get an understanding of how scripts are arranged and the terminology that is used.

These 3 links are related to your question, please read them through and try the examples.

So if i were to make a loop doing "Down z, Down z, Down z..." and so forth, would it look like this?

loop 1000
sleep 1000
sleep 900
