    I know that you can use FileVault to protect the Home folder, but is there a way that I can password protect individual files or folders on the Mac?

    Create an encrypted disk image in disk utility and then put the files inside of that.

    Open up Disk Utility (it's in /Applications/Utilities/) and select New Image, and then select encryption
