I've already put in a file named "index.html" to keep casual browsing away. If I add password protection to the folder how would I be able to access files in it through Rev?

Simply do

put  URL "ftp://username:password@www.mysite.com/secretroom/somefile.txt" into myVar

The file will can be left not be accessible through http, and ftp requires the password, so you should be protected.
