Hi VIctor
You can do this in Mathematica certainly.
There is a list of commands for you to looking for in Mathematica
Helps (F1):

1- Graphics3D[]
     To do graphics in an more primitive way, you will need the Line

2- ListPointPlot3D
     More easy way to plot points, but not joined

3- Manipulate
    Create dynamic content

4- Import["yourfile.xlsx"]
    To import your excel

I wish it could help you
Best Regards
