Not very simple to answer.
Need to know the exact shape of the two identities you want to mate, bit I think it needs to be a concentric mate. If this doesnt work you can always make a "ghost" entity. Two shapes that you CAN mate, and than hide those shapes.
Hope you'll succeed.....

the machine has 5 pulleys but for now i'm trying to make it work with just two.

i made a gear mate between the pulleys but now i can't find a way to made the weight ( which is just a rectangular block ) to follow to rotation ...

Maybe I could draw a line , representing the imaginart cable as the path the weight should follow , but still how will the weight lift ?

Sorry mate, i wish i could help but i do not know.
My only suggestion to you is "just try" or use the help function.
This will sometimes work.
